Whenever I think of creativity one thing precedes it in my thoughts, an open mind. There should be flow of all kinds of ideas in and out of a mind just like traffic in a round about. Odd ones like designing a house of plastic bottles, extreme ones like condensing room-size vacuum pumps and transistors into a microchip, simple ones, in quotes, like writing a book or article. It’s what you feed your mind that makes the difference. GIGO. Garbage In Garbage Out.

Yours is to visit this places. It’s healthy, nourishing and once you are out, camping or just hiking, to the silence or thundering wild, you can let it out through various of ways. Take for instance myself. My choice of retreat while I’m not alone are waterfalls. The thundering splash of water creats such a nice backround noise that facilitates my increasing urge to scream my lungs out. Simply because I hate the way I scream and shout, and people are likely to dislike it more, no one has to here me do it. Guys, shouting lessens your soul and makes you feel awesome and young. It gives you the sense of ‘I can do what I want when I goddamn want to, and be proud of it’. So keep shouting…
The woods are for the often times when I’m alone. If you don’t believe nature whispers visit the woods and hush. Simply listen without having a specific thing to listen to. Let it surprise you. And learn to keep your mind open when you are at it. That’s how I get insight and spiritual nourishment.
Imagine yourself treading over this huge rocks, streams of cool mountain waters slithering below you. It’s already thrilling.
