You cannot govern
the creative impulse;
"Wallflower # 8" © Meri Arnett-Kremian 2010
all you can do
is to eliminate obstacles
and smooth the way for it.
Are you making room for creative expression
or are you letting obstacles
stand in your way?
If you tell yourself
there's not enough time,
commit to perform one random act
of creativity each day.

Cook with flair.
If you already keep a gratitude journal,
here's a thought:
take one photo per day of something
you're grateful for.
Add it to your journal.
If you keep the journal on your computer,
it's easy to integrate photos with text.
