     I am aware of my ego sneaking in while creating artwork. I'll be in a zone and then I notice a thought coming in......."sweet, this is awesome" .. "yes! I'm in flow".....or.... " I can't do this right now. I feel so clumsy". My ego wants to hold onto these thoughts and then in the next moment beat myself up for  giving them value by pulling myself out of the task at hand to have an "ego trip". The ego is just so damn seductive. I've learned to notice the thought, breathe, and let it float on by.
