creative thoughts

So, if I awaken thinking of creativity, I am making something in my mind.

I have caused something to happen as a result of deliberately acknowledging creativity. I may think thoughts without this deliberate act and the creation—the imagination—may skip by unnoticed and thus I have missed the opportunity. But, by bringing the thought more fully into existence—by listening to the words in my head or watching the colors of the landscape or by consciously hearing the symphony of nature—I have created something new and unique—no matter how brief—if only in my mind. They were thoughts and images that did not exist until I gave them the space and opportunity to be acknowledged and to come into existence.

...and that's my creative thought of the day.

Coolies!

Sometimes I wonder if all those cool creative thoughts we have aren't being stored up somewhere - like maybe in a different form, like as swirling light or something - and we get to put them on at some point in the future.

But hey, maybe I'm just insane.

sue--a little insanity can produce a lot of creativity--in my humble opinion :-)
