Some of us forget to do it. Others are taught that somehow all the doing for others is supposed to magically get it done.  In the end, we need to remember what we tell every small child with enough dexterity to pick up a Cheerio, feed yourself. …Details

Planting Too Deep

Being creative seems to me to be a bit like planting.  Some projects need a really specific situation with lots of preplanning and just the right combination of elements in the right order to make them flourish.  Some are set it and forget it, then need lavish care once they come into the light of day. …Details
