Good stuff, thanks!

Well, I wonder.

I'm never here. now. I engage in two creative processes--writing and crochet, and the crochet turned inevitably into storytelling with yarn.

When I do other things, like cooking or washing up or showering or any other mundane things, I'm always thinking about the creative stuff too.

I'd find it a great waste of valuable creative time to just be.in.the.moment, especially since I'm always trying to work out a creative problem and it takes lots of itching at it to do so. Winkling something out of my brain.

Peace and satisfaction may be considered different things but the peace that comes from satisfactorily working out a problem is a nice place to arrive at.

To be sure, I don't like to be *busy." Just occupied with my own thinking.
