Time for a Feeding Frenzy

By Tracy Astle

Okay, so I've become the Queen of Quotes. I seem to be on a quote binge lately (and I make no guarantees as to how long this episode might last). But it's okay, it's not fattening like so many other binges. 

I love a good quote; it lets me learn wonderful things from others' experiences. I'm all about learning from others so I can gain from several lifetimes of wisdom, not just my own.

At any rate, here's your quote to gnaw on until it's my turn to post again.

“I have never had a dry spell in my life, mainly because I feed myself well, to the point of bursting. I wake early and hear my morning voices leaping around in my head like jumping beans. I get out of bed quickly, to trap them before they escape.”
— Ray Bradbury

Oh my. Isn't this...inspiring, daunting, exciting, depressing...something? How wonderful to think of never having a dry spell. It makes me stop and take stock of what I do to "feed myself well." Reading, watching people or any number of other things, zoning out and letting my imagination roam, listening to whatever - people, music, animals, nature, ideas, these are all things that are delicious to me and feed my creative spirit. All of them involve being attentive to life as it's happening, which is sometimes easier said than done, but always worthwhile and enriching.

How about you? How do you "feed" yourself creatively?

  1. Love the quote, and at the same time, it intimidates me! I am learning that the first step to feeding my creativity is taking care of my physical body. As my health has improved, so has my ability to think and share those thoughts.
