I’m wondering about the rest of you in the good old US of A and whether you had trouble focusing yesterday. Did you? Oh my – I sure did. Body, mind, and soul hit the creative road block. And I don’t think it was only about the election. So, I finally threw in the towel and cleaned. Sort of. And with that I’ll tell you a tiny story.
My daughter had a canceled class and was able to sleep late. Around noonish, I walked into her room. Now, I can’t tell this story without describing the state of said room. Once I took a picture and put it on Facebook to play a game like “Where’s Waldo” or “I Spy”. Anyway…
The norm is that when I’m in this room, I can’t look directly at her while speaking because of the sheer level of distraction. As I turn to walk out, a stretch and a moan come from a dark spot directly in front of me, few feet ahead. It’s Sophie. I never even saw her – the obvious living, breathing thing directly in front of me was overlooked.
Now, for a really fantastic message about creativity and focus, go here. You will not regret. I promise.
