Threading thoughts ... on figuring it all out ...
I know what you mean! I joke about split personalities or the muse butting in. It's a puzzle sometimes but usually a pleasurable one.
Sheila, I think that we should just count ourselves lucky, and go with the flow!
Lucky indeed! I often think how barren my life would seem if the ideas and urge to create suddenly stopped. For me, it’s a very scary thought ...
If you have the urge to create the ideas never really stop completely. But if the urge to create goes, ... would you notice that life was barren?
Yes, I think you would. I think I've even experienced it briefly. What would fill my days instead? What would give meaning to my daily existence. What would matter in its place. Yeah, I've thought about this before. However, if you'd never had the urge to create, I think you'd already have done something else to keep life from being barren. I'm getting tangled up in my thoughts so I will stop with that!
Sheila, this is a big subject, and like you while pondering this I find that my thoughts have become too tangled to write down coherently. Some conversations just have to be had face to face with interruptions, interjections, back-downs, persuasions, ... just the immediacy of explanation, agreements to differ, and/or understanding and agreement.Let me just say that for me creativity is the vital spark of life, and the act of thinking creatively is sometimes enough in itself.
