things I know so far #2

Screen shot 2014-05-19 at 6.47.51 PMcreativity rarely occurs in a vacuum

it can be a group activity

or even just a conversation

listening to criticism is not the same

as beating yourself up

the mistakes you take great pains to avoid passing on

to your children

will be replaced by other, perhaps bigger mistakes that

sneak in where your blind spot is

nostalgia should be an alarm bell

but rituals can be comfort

trees are nearly always good news

as are many kinds of animals

and sports

and old friends

when you hear your mother or father speaking

and look around to see who said something

and discover it was you

it’s not always a bad thing

music transcends

if it doesn’t, it’s not the right music
