” Creativity is the quality that you bring to the activity that you are doing. It is an attitude, an inner approach – how you look at things . . . Whatsoever you do, if you do it joyfully, if you do it lovingly, if your act of doing is not purely economical, then it is creative.” – Osho Its summer! and time to go outside. It's also time to wander, discover and explore the world around us. For me it's all about travel and visits to Lake Tahoe and mini adventures that I can create at the last minute to see where I will end up. These are the best ways I find to develop my creative muscles. I'll be traveling to San Francisco and Chicago and will have my camera ready to capture all that I see. I just came across a new book by Keri Smith called the Wander Society. I have been a huge fan of Keri's for quite some time and even started my own creative journey on this blog with her 100 Ideas. I'm intrigued by the subject matter of the book and want to go exploring and wandering to see what I can find out about this secret society. This month, I want you to explore. If you are so inclined, purchase the book and follow along with me. Or pull out your phone, camera or sketchbook and go outside. Take a walk, stop along the way and record what you see, hear, feel and smell. These records can turn into inspiration for your writing, your art or just be something special for your sketchbook. If you get stuck, pull an idea off Keri's 100 ideas worksheet and see where that takes you. Most importantly, these exercise are meant to be fun, easy and not perfect. Get outside and enjoy!
