A series of blog entries will catch you up on what I've been up to lately.
As the title says, 10 ways to generate new ideas is where I am headed. Maybe it will will grow in to 15 or 20, who knows.
Today we start with number uno.
Travel is a great way to let your brain unwind and let go. New scenery, sights, and smells will make way for new connections and new ideas. My trip to Austin was full of inspiration.
We were rushing to a venue to see Eyes Lips Eyes play and I almost literally ran in to a real life example of yarn bombing. I was so excited. To me seeing a little rebellious knitting around a light pole gave me hope. It meant there are people out there who care. They care enough to add a little touch of surprise to an ordinary day for a stranger. A stranger like me. If you look closer you'll see someone added some paper butterflies to it as well.
Don't think you have to travel half way around the world to get inspiration. You can try going to a nearby town. Or think about what it would be like if you've never been to your own town and try to see it with a fresh pair of eyes. Even better get out there and leave a harmless example of inspiration of your own for someone else. What has inspired you lately? Please share.
