Before the Creative Process
I’ve been spending a bit of time each morning in my journal, dreaming.
Writing down things that come to me.
Entertaining all the fun possibilities and flights of my imagination.
(It’s basically the opposite of worrying. You know, like when we imagine all the things that could go wrong except now we imagine all the things that could go right!)
If one is going to use one’s imagination, I figure why not use it to imagine the good stuff??
Why don’t we spend more time daydreaming happiness and
less zero on the other?
Dreaming is magic.
I won’t tell you that I understand how it works, but I will tell you that a fair amount of what I dreamed of ten years ago has come to pass. And a whole slew of good things that I didn’t imagine got on board with those dreams.
Enough reason to be a confirmed daydream believer.
If we were sitting over a favorite drink, talking art and creativity and fear and dreams, what would you have to say? Where’s your mind and heart these days as it relates to your creativity?
Since I do a lot of the talking around here, I’d love to hear from you! Please share in the comments below 🙂
P.S. Conversations with art friends are simply the best!
