This week has been a struggle between creativity and moi. Epic failure on my end. I've hit a stretch where I am sooooo uninspired that nothing seems intriguing. I've always viewed creativity as noticing the obvious, but looking at it from a different angle. Like 2 + 2 = 5!
Which might explain why I never could understand the logical thought process of math, OR it's importance in 90% of my daily life.
I've also learned that over thinking is the enemy of creativity. The more you reason, the less you create. Paralysis by analysis. I equate this to Thing #1 and his batting average. Every ball player goes thru batting slumps. Thing #1 was no exception. He got frustrated, he analyzed his batting technique, he changed his stance, he altered his swing, he messed with his mechanics. And you know what? It only made the slump worse. I remember my better-half's wise, wise words.....STOP THINKING!!!! Yes my friends....I'm in a batting slump.
So, in the immortal words of Scarlett O'Hara "I can't think about that right now, if I do I'll go crazy". Instead, I'm just going to enjoy my bundle of hydrangeas I picked up at Whole Foods today. So Scarlett, just STOP THINKING and.......SWING! Haha, I did just combine "Gone With the Wind" and baseball (those who know me shouldn't be too surprised, fiddle dee dee!)
And a few with a black background (my handy dandy piece of black poster board):
Hope you all have a creative Thursday!
