Ran out of Creativity

With the days slipping by and my lack of blogs for my 30 days of Creativity I think I will take the liberty of changing direction! What’s the worst that can happen?

That being said, I thought the words below could apply quite well to creativity. It could be Rules for Being Creative!

Day 17 of 30 days of Creativity

I was recently gifted a capsicum plant that looked like it may not survive. I put it on my kitchen bench where it gets lots of sunlight. It seems to be thriving now and has some baby capsicums!

This photo was taken today at normal size. The photo below is magnified x10.
See the baby capsicums!

Favourite musicians

I enjoy most types of music: the 1970s was my era. I enjoy pop music, light classical, country and much more …

I am listening to Billy Joel as I write this (Piano Man). I am also a fan of Bob Dylan, Creedence Clear Water Revival, Carole King, Buddy Holly, Gene Pitney, Bee Gees, Adele, Kasey Chambers, Leann Rimes, Janis Joplin, Eagles, Rod Stewart and many more I can’t remember until I hear the songs! Music really has the ability to bring us back to a moment in time. I wonder if you have heard of all these musicians. Some go back to the 1950s.

Day 11 of 30 Days of Creativity

Today I will write on the following prompt: Would we be happier if we were living closer to nature?

It is easy to say a resounding YES to this question however I can only answer for myself. I love nature and enjoy watching the birds, kangaroos and cows that I sometimes spot through my back fence.

We had a full height fence and earlier this year replaced it with half-height to enable us to see what happens on the other side. It is just a small stand of peppermint trees based in the corner of a farm that has been partially redeveloped. It is fenced off from the public so we get exclusive viewing rights (along with some of our neighbours.

It is wonderful to stand in my kitchen and be able to see kangaroos nibbling on the grass. We get plenty of magpies, willy wagtails, silver-eyes and sometimes we get parrots (who annoyingly like to eat my geraniums).

Farmer Bell occassionally allows his black angus cows to graze in the area as well. They are big impressive animals that seem to freeze on the spot when they spot me looking at them.

With the warmer weather coming on we may get some reptiles visiting us as well. We have had two tiger snakes (deadly) in the past few years. We also get skinks, bobtail lizards and frogs.

Ours is a small ecosystem but so very easy to access. I find nature to be calming and inspiring and that has to be a good thing!
