    My escape is to exercise both the body and the mind. The first is usually done via walking/biking and the second by reading. Anything, but most often fiction. The combination of both of these things get's me out of any rut, whether its in the form of 'photographer's block' or just plain old stress.

    If I'm in a rut I use a tow truck! But really I do other things for a while.

    I use a Hi-Lift jack [http://www.hi-lift.com/hi-lift-jacks/index.html]. I use the jack on the bumper to lift the wheels above the ruts. Then I carefully push the jack to the side so that the wheels fall to the left or right of the ruts. I repeat the process on the other end of the vehicle, pick up and stow the jack. Then I drive off. I hope this will help you both now and in the future to get out of the ruts.

    John, you aren’t in a rut, you are just resting between ideas.

    “The contemplation of things as they are, without error or confusion, without substitution or imposture, is in itself a nobler thing than a whole harvest of invention”

    When I am in a rut, I look at John Nanian's photography for inspiration.
