I may be a photographer, but (at the risk of being shunned by all fellow photographers) it doesn’t take THAT much creativity to capture a beautiful image. Not compared to making a beautiful painting or putting together a one-of-a-kind necklace, or even making your own batch of Happy Birthday, Congrats, I Love You cards.
I went to a cute store today in Brookside called Stuff. This place was incredible. It was a small space filled to the brim with STUFF. All sorts from different local artists. They have anything and everything from soap to bracelets to burp rags (my neighbor makes and sells her Flutterbelle brand towels, burpees, etc at Stuff!) to hand made wallets to rugs…the list goes on and on.
Anyway, long story short, I wish I had more creativity. Or the ability to use my imagination more. It does take a lot to be able to look at something and see it in photograph form and to know what exact moment to snap the shutter closed, but it seems different to me.
I’m not one of those people who can just sit down an draw a beautiful, awe-inspiring picture. Now, put an already thought up and done picture in front of me and I can replicate it with pencil and paper just fine; it’s the coming up with the idea that is my issue.
Any suggestions on how to create creativity?

Future living arrangements?
So far, three places on my top 10 list of places I’m going to be living…
Please note that they each contain some form of water…and mountains. Common link? Well, yes of course.

Yous got more issues than a dang magazine
I have a few issues.
number 1: laziness
number 2: lack of work ethic
number 3: gossip-icity
number 4: desire for self gain rather than what’s best for others
number 5: backstabbing
number 6: disinterest in that which you should be very interested in if you’re doing it for a living
Most are regarding work.
What can I do about it? Well…nothing but leave, but that’s not an option right away.
Too much crap is going on, too many changes, too many non-changes, not the right kind of changes, too much emphasis on money saving and not enough on the so-called ‘greater good.’
How Staffing Agencies Make Kansas Look Appealing
Over 200 lakes offer a world of boating, fishing, and water skiing opportunities for travel nursing and therapy jobs in Kansas. For a real thrill, you can try an authentic cattle drive or take a hike in the Flint Hills. How about roughing it on a dude ranch? If you’re feeling brave, maybe even a hot air balloon ride? Kansas is the country’s heartland at its most authentic. Whether you visit Wichita or the eastern metropolis of Kansas City, you’ll find plenty of urban diversions. Sports fans know that Kansas City is home to the Royals and the Chiefs, two great franchises and good opportunities to cheer
Sunny With a High of 75
Ah, yes…it’s been quite a while.
I’m currently sitting on the deck in a t-shirt, with the warm breeze blowing on my face…this 70 degree weather is wonderful, even if it’s just a tease (Hello! It’s still February).
As I sit and brainstorm all the places I would like to live, I can’t help but yearn for somewhere that feels like this every day, all year long—with a few incredibly ferocious storms here and there. It looks like California is the top candidate, but I don’t really know anything about it except for what everyone says about Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll…or is it Show Biz?
I’ve been catching up on the first seasons of Brothers & Sisters (The stories/life of a crazy yet loving dysfunctional family from Pasadena who, for some reason, seems completely normal to me). Watching it and seeing their lives in Cali makes it seem so attractive. Not the hussle bussle of downtown LA, but the vineyards close by, the nice beaches, the mild weather. Of course, yes, it is television and not real life, but who’s to say that not how it CAN be?
