3 somethings and something else

I'm not good at consistency. Growing up playing tennis I would hit one winner down the line and then the next would be a loop de loop lob over the fence.  It was like two different players appeared on the court. I don't really play tennis that much anymore. But I do see that consistency in the day of technology could be easier to achieve. Only share what is "good" "thought out" "fully formed." Only show the winners down the line. But I know it's not who I am. I'm a mixture of mishaps, attempts, creative explosions, and sometimes loop de loops over a magical fence. I don't even know why I am writing this now as I logged on to be consistent with sharing 3 inspirations ( or somethings that I have read, seen , noticed, heard lately) I've often thought it would be a good idea to do it EVERY friday, be consistent. That hasn't happened yet. I come on whenever I do and perhaps that is enough for now.

3 things that have nothing to do with what I just wrote above.

1. This book I recently picked up again off my shelf.  It's a highly original take on creativity from the high wire performer and artist Phillipe Petit.

2. This online class from Carla Sonheim is a daily creative boost in your inbox. It's a mix of quick exercises, painting/drawing/collage techniques, artist interviews and prompts, sprinkled with inspiring little moment videos. It's a gift every day for your creative self to grow. I'm planning to sign up again this year.


Had a tiny moment of clarity mixed with "What if" wonder while drawing and quickly wrote this on a scrap paper.  Really,,, What if every action were framed as an experiment?
