I try to find the time each day to walk. I live in a rural area and so my walks take me by the farms that are surround by mountains. This is my time to escape and ponder. Creativity stems from these moments.
My son gave me a small recorder to take on my walks. The idea being that I could record many of my thoughts and ideas but I have yet to use it. Some how I find it to be a distraction as if I have to really think about what it is I want to remember. I just need to download my brain into the computor I am sure it will be a possiblity at some point in time.
