I am typically drawn to things that are unusual or unconventional. And mystical. I like things that are a bit strange; unexplained. Esoteric teachings fascinate me.

So I experiment a lot with thoughts and ideas. If This is so, how is That not so? That’s a big question for me; one I like to play with often. How did this come to be? How did it come to be accepted? Why? What is the purpose of this belief? That ideology? How does it serve? How does it not serve?

My struggle is to balance the mundane obligations of life with creativity. My challenge is to approach the mundane as creatively as I can. It’s hard to be creative when vacuuming the floor, for instance, but the floor still needs to be vacuumed. Or does it? I’ve been conditioned to wanting to live in a clean environment and vacuuming is one way to achieve that. If the stuff I dump out of my vacuum canister is anything to go by, it’s testimony to at least a certain degree of success. (Where does all that stuff come from!?) If I can’t be creative about pushing Tyler, my Dyson Ball vacuum cleaner, around, I can at least be thankful for the time it gives me to experiment with thoughts and ideas. Like how to be creative when I’m paying my bills! Again, I find it fascinating that just by moving numbers from one field on my computer screen to another, service providers are somehow satisfied. All I’m giving them is digits, disguised as binary code. It’s kind of bizarre – when you really think about it.

Few things are as satisfying as a healthy debate. Often this is where the unusual and unconventional come to light; where the imagination is ignited and new ideas are born.
