When inspiration wakes me and the impulse to create is present its best for me to ‘get on with it’ and move into the playful impulse to create.
My usual practice when I wake up in the middle of the night and remember a dream is to write it down in my journal. When I go back to sleep without recording my dream I often lose the threads of my dream story and landscape and as a result I am unable to play with my dream gift later on during my waking hours.
Over the years I have created play lists of what I want to try on in my life and have written hundreds and hundreds of pages long-hand in my journals. These journals fill my bookshelves and drawers. My computer’s backup drive has many files stored there with writing and projects that I have yet to share.
Do you come up with creative ideas that don’t see the light of day? or How do you take action so that your creative ideas can be shared with others?
Play is the portal to creativity. When we honor our playful impulse to create we are honoring our playful, creative Self.
