    totally amazing – what a great series of challenges here – ohhh, my mind is buzzing with excitement, but with no particular place to go – and my drive shaft is busted …. perhaps later … later …. but love it!

      Buzz away — there is no best before due date. Creativity and imagination doesn’t always have one. I can wait til your drive shaft is fixed. Smiling.

        LOL – love the metaphors here 😉

        Thanks — I am trying to think of the creative process, as you have suggested, as a multifaceted, multiphased movement towards something . . .

        that’s a good approach, I think …. it’s hard at first, but when you get into the swing of it, then it becomes easier and the results are like a wonderful gift – a box filled with more possibilities that can suit the moods and means as needed 🙂

        I like the idea of the box of wonderments.

        (much less stressful than trying to conform or perform under duress)

        Strange to think of how I do conform — addicted to the prompt — like Pavlov’s dogs at times I’m afraid. Have to learn to hold back and ruminate. Let the words fall into the box as they, not I, will.

        we all conform – which can be both good and bad – it’s when we limit ourselves by the beliefs that we “should” or “have to produce” in only one way ….. where would the world be if people didn’t root around in the box and pull things apart and then stitch them back together, in new ways, whether by deliberation, or allowance of the toys themselves?

        A rather dull and dingy place I suspect.

        yup ….. how boring!

      I do this a lot. Just a mind-slip.
