LOVES ME     oil   36" x 36"   R Garriott

PLEASE NOTE: I did NOT write what follows. A link to the much longer, expansive original by Carolyn Gregoire appears at the end of the list. My friends and I have found it to be a conversation sparker. What do YOU think?


18 Things Highly Creative People Do Differently

  1. Daydream.
  2. Observe everything.
  3. Work the hours that work for you.
  4. Take time for solitude.
  5. Turn life’s obstacles around.
  6. Seek out new experiences.
  7. “Fail up.”
  8. Ask the big questions.
  9. People-watch.
  10. Take risks.
  11. View all of life as an opportunity for self-expression.
  12. Follow your true passions.
  13. Get out of your own head.
  14. Lose track of the time.
  15. Surround yourself with beauty.
  16. Connect the dots.
  17. Constantly shake things up.
  18. Make time for mindfulness.

If you have more time to to spare, here is (as far as I know) the original:
