Bugsy's direct route to creativity


This is Bugsy. He loves to get inside sacks, boxes, and, in this case, the quilted bag I use to carry my laptop.  He just happily curls up and enjoys the inside-ness of the chosen receptacle. I really don't think he has any deep thoughts beyond the bag. And that's the beauty of Bugsy.

I envy Bugsy's adaptable nature and his ability to just wipe his brain clear of anything but the most immediate of experiences. He takes be here now to a whole new level  . It seems to me that I'd be a lot more productive if I had a magic bag I could enter, curl up in and use to clear my brain of all the ambient interference.

Until I develop the magic of Bugsy, I'll just keep working with what I've got and grab a handful of creativity whenever I can..

just wonderful! Also the bag probably makes him feel all snug, safe and cozy like the womb. Who WOULDN'T want that?

Kids so often do the same thing--living in the moment--and it's a shame when they start dreading or anticipating everything instead of being in the now.

I fear I have taught my kids this... too bad. Now if I could just unteach it to them (and myself)!

Very well said.

BTW, thanks for visiting my blog, Lou. You mentioned a hugely long list... I'd love to know what it is, but I understand if putting it all down makes it seem too overwhelming.
