Calm And Quiet Equals Creativity

I always love to read about creative people... especially women... who are juggling many facets of their lives but still find time for art.

Delphine Frank is a glass mosaicist and calligrapher (along with her "real" job). You can read her story here.

I especially like that she says her ideas come to her when she is calm and quiet. When she forces herself to be creative, nothing happens.

I have found that to be true. Sometimes I like to take a nap in the afternoon or sit out on my deck for twenty minutes and watch the sky. Or walk up to the top of the park at the end of my street. It is during those times that my brain is at its most creative.
