Unlike Tessa, whose nose is in a constant state of wonder and overload, sometimes I feel like I’m grasping for ideas that are teasingly outside my reach.
Just when I think I’m getting close – POOF!
There’s nothing there.
So, I dig in and try again. If that doesn’t work, I Breathe Deeply. Check on the laundry or the dishes. Get the dogs out.
Get myself out. I call it taking my subconscious for a walk.
Change of scene. Change of pace. Shake up the energy and gain a different perspective. You never know when you’ll bump into something that will suggest a more novel approach.
Like the gorgeous white labrador-in-training to be a Seeing Eye Dog sitting still as a statue in front of the check out counter at the library with her head looking up at her handler.
Or picking up a manilla envelope containing stories written by children who entered the writing contest that HRD and the library co-sponsored. We weren’t sure what to expect.
Boy, were we surprised! Wait til you see. [gplus count=”true” size=”Medium” ]
