Over-organization has taken me.
A week of little things, tiny things, and chasing about has put my organizational mind in control — creativity has temporarily gone missing.
I spend a silent conversation with a cup of coffee, wondering why I’m stuck with some sort of boring, straight-in-a-line, ordinary run-of-the-mill, deadly, cliche thinking. I try for the switch to turn on the electricity, but the current is more static than energy.
I pick up a pencil and start listing — literally and figuratively. Things to do are what I start writing. I put the pencil down and check around for something more rewarding.
Then I look out the window to catch that first second of sunlight spilling into the harbor.
It’s a light going on. It’s a sparkle of ideas set out before me.
Inspiration shows up just when I need it.
What a relief that is.
Who, what, where has inspired you lately?
