  1. My “revolutionary” ideas come out of the blue but are generally linked to an experience or encounter I’ve had in the past. So maybe that not really out of the blue–maybe just a delayed reaction–giggle

  2. I love this. I love the theory that ideas are alive. I believe this! For myself, creativity has always been there, no escape or reason. I find that an idea comes, and it is a work in progress……it grows and changes. One of those most satisfying part of creativity, is all of the decisions and problem solving that comes with it.
