Creativity break

Not that you'd notice from the amount of activity on this page recently, but I'm going to do something now that makes me a little nervous and tentative. I'm turning off the computer and walking away for a few days.

I spend a large portion of my day sitting in a chair staring at a computer screen as part of my deal to sell a certain corporation 40-50 hours of my life every week. Before work and after work, I come home and spend time sitting in a chair staring at a computer screen.

I noticed something months ago: Many of my most creative moments involve sitting in a chair, or on a park bench, with a pencil and pad of paper in my hands. And I enjoy being creative.

If my creative well has run dry sitting in front of the computer screen, it's time to turn off the 'pooter and recharge. See ya Wednesday.

Talk amongst yourselves. Download an ebook or two. Browse the Richardson & Bluhm box; I can always use the FRNs and you could use some of the new and vintage literature in there.

Above all, of course, refuse to be afraid. Free yourself. Dream.

Oh, I hear you! I unintentionally took a similar computer break over the weekend, and enjoyed it a good deal.

Hope you enjoy your break; and that your creativity rewards your time away.
