Hitting the bulls'-eye

This morning I was reading the S.F. Chronicle and came across an interesting story. It was about an 80's rocker named Kip Winger. After his short success he had reinvented himself as a classical music composer. At the end of the story he said "...But every once in a while all the stars align, and you pull your arrow back from your bow and you hit the bull's-eye."

I'm thinking of the times when I was just creating, there was no time, just being there and when the piece is complete I look and am amazed by what I made. The pulling back of the arrow and letting go. The leap of faith every artist and crafts person takes when they enter the studio.
It's pure majic! The juice that fuels the artist's dreams.
