There are several things I love in this article… like how “group-think” doesn’t always work, and why (we are so eager to PLEASE rather than do the right thing) … how ‘follow the leader’ is always more comfortable than breaking rank (to be more creative) … but mostly, finally, this article points out that PLACE has a lot to do with creativity. I’ve always believed this… that there are some places that are more stimulating to be in… but then, it’s about our powers of observation too. Most importantly, this article says it, “Get out of your rut.”
So, here’s the link plus a photo of me getting out of my rut … after all, we live in Los Angeles, which is mostly bright and warm. Here I am, in the snow, a rare event… when we crossed over Mingus Mountain, recently, going from Jerome, Arizona, to Prescott, on our way back to LA.
