i am starting this blog for a number of reasons--the most important of which is to make myself focus on the creative/inspirational moments of my day. i was once stuck in a tornado shelter in fayetteville arkansas with musician bobby mcferren. when someone asked how often he created music. he said--that he sits down for 15 minutes everyday and does something creative. he records sounds, or writes or hums. that 15 minutes could just be 15 minutes... but it could turn into hours. he only forces the fifteen minutes--what ever else happens is bonus. sometimes you create the start of a great piece, sometimes you just get out what needs to get out.
this is my attempt to do something creative for at least 15 minutes a day. be it cooking, painting, sewing or just examing the world through another lens.
