taking time to live your life will only inspire your work.
creativity needs a fresh perspective in order to thrive.
it needs inspiration beyond what you typically see in your nine to five.
new ideas arrive through happy accidents, when two unexpected worlds collide, when you step outside your office (your studio, your cell, your cubicle, your hell), when you go for a walk and breathe in the fresh air, when you pursue something that's not work, not a chore, but is simply a passion, and it then becomes play...
you invite spontaneity into your day.
sparks fire, synapses engage. new mental pathways between multiple disparate parts become one, creating something new and uniquely you.
magic is found in your experiences.
