Creativity Tips: The Sound of Music

Brenda's comment on yesterday's post -- remarking about the wonderful variety of birds in her backyard -- instigated today's post. (Thanks, Brenda!)

For the past few weeks, I've enjoyed robins singing outside my office window every morning. It's beautiful wake-up music.

Here's the challenge: In another few weeks, I'll be so used to the birds, I won't even hear them. It's the avian version of marital deafness. Even worse, if I do hear them, I'll find the constant chirping annoying. I'll worry that they're building a nest in the eaves.

Sound familiar? It's a common problem. The creative solution? Slow down. Stay in the moment. And just enjoy the music.
