There are people in this life who have the uncanny ability to sap creative energy and and inflict negativity and cynicism on me. I call them creativity sappers who are never satisfied with anything, are self-centered, narcissistic, mean spirited and generally somewhat paranoid. Nothing worse than sitting down to a days composing to be interrupted by one of these people whose negativity will impact creative flow. My resolution is to avoid communication with these people when I am composing. Lighten up and count your blessings.
