Well, I was so busy yesterday that I didn’t get my daily words in.
“Idleness is not doing nothing. Idleness is being free to do anything.”
Floyd Dell, American Writer, 1887-1969
Creative people of any kind need that idle time to recharge and allow the new ideas to percolate. Sometimes I do my best problem solving when I am not doing anything. Or a crazy thought will come to me that triggers a poem, a story, a dance, or an essay. Being perpetually busy can stifle your intuitive powers. In one of those idle moments I decided to start this blog. It freed me up to consider other writings that will appear in the future.
So put down that broom and spend a little time doing nothing.
