I am asked a lot where my ideas come from and truthfully I don't know for sure.
What I do know is that if you only have a hammer then everything looks like a nail, so learning new things is a priority for me. Learning is not always easy. Personally it needs to have a reason and a result in mind for it to totally resonate.
Learning however helps me take steps, literally and figuratively - forward, backwards or sideways - and motion is always good. Motion actives my senses and shakes together all that I have seen, tasted, touched, smelled, known and imagined. That's when the magic happens - when the unrelated are related. When the unrelated, relate and connect and fit and gel and stick, something new happens.
What follows is an all encompassing breathe and possibility fills the lungs of a new idea. With focused effort it comes to life.
