Being Quiet, Listening and Creativity

Today I wrote my first guest post on Karen Sanderson’s blog, “The Word Shark”. Hope you enjoy it. Also take a look at Karen’s blog her humor is contagious. Don’t forget to check out her poems.

We take on so many roles and it gets complicated and crowded. Most of us keep our lives full. Mine has been that way. It seemed quite “normal” after all – mom raised eight kids and I seldom saw her take a break.

Over the years, it has become abundantly clear to me how important to my creativity it is to be quiet and listen. The more quiet time I allow myself, the calmer my life becomes. Little things have more importance. As strange as it may seem, I get more accomplished. When I work, I’m more focused. And when I play, well, I play. . .
