“The soul should always stand ajar. Ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.” - Emily Dickinson
Our minds are like cisterns.
While cisterns catch the rainwater and store for later use, our minds are an infinite flow of ideas. Instead of letting those thoughts pass through like an empty tube, we need to learn to file them for later creative use. It’s amazing what you can come up with if you step away and take another look a bit later.
Cisterns need regular inspection and to be kept clean for daily usage.
Our minds need to be open to receive information and exercised regularly for optimal performance.
The way to grow creatively is to create. We need only give life to our ideas.
We are each creative. We only must learn to trust our instincts to go with the flow within.
We live in a creative world. Inspiration is all around us.
Use all of your senses. Look. Listen. Feel. Taste. Smell.
Live in your world and see what your world gives back to you.
Collect those ideas. Let them develop. Use them.
Allow yourself the freedom to express yourself.
When the creative impulse hits, go for it!
Living in the Gap
February 11, 2012 – Happy Dog!
Dirt Man had been out of town for a few days on a business trip. He snuck in the front door…well, he didn’t sneak in, but Wylie wasn’t expecting him. She came charging across the room nearly knocking me down. She was determined to get to him first. She wedged herself between us, thrashing our legs with her twisting torso as she tangoed back and forth and circled around him. She drooled all over his shirt, licked his face, and sniffed him from head to toe. I was happy to see him as well…however, I refuse to lick and snort him!
