Notes on Creativity theme of the week:
A Different Perspective
It’s as common sense as separating laundry.
But, I had a conversation today which made me reconsider the extent to which I compartmentalize the details of my life.
Over coffee, we discussed how full people’s lives are these days. There are multiple demands pulling us in a myriad of directions. Even getting together with friends can be a challenge as schedules need to be coordinated for weeks ahead at times.
And yet, if we just integrate our lives a bit more, wouldn’t things be easier?
If I have to go grocery shopping, and my friend does too, why not tie the errands we have to run anyway with spending time together?
If I’ve been meaning to work out but just can’t find the time, why not do it on a lunch break I have anyway, rather than trying to make extra time?
If I have to make supper and want to get more involved in my community, why not join a community kitchen group where we cook together and share enough food for the week?
Even mixing laundry has its perks. I accidentally washed one of The Wise One in the House’s white socks with his load of darks once. He ended up with a light blue sock to match the white one left behind. He made the rule that I never do his laundry again.
I can live with that…

The theme for this week is about finding one different perspective on something in my life every day.
Revolution- a radical departure from what is to a bold new future, right or wrong, for better or for worse.
A healthy dose of idealism accompanies any successful movement.
Disillusionment is the sum total of all failed revolutions, marked by the wounded left to put the pieces of their lives back together.
