Finding Balance & Creativity

Balance / Books / creativity

I have two elements in mind with this post: psychological and physical. One of the things that has scares me a bit about creativity is getting caught up in it! I remember as a teenager making my own clothes. I would get so carried away I could not stop until I finished the job! Sound familiar to anyone? I think it is being “in the flow” where nothing else matters except what is in front […]

creativity enhancement

A little book called “A Year of Creativity” by Brenda Mallon (Andrews McMeel Publishing) sits on my desk. A friend has lent it to me for ideas for the course I will be leading this term. It is rich with ideas and suggestions to explore. It is divided into twelve chapters and I thought I would share Chapter 5 (or Month 5 as the book calls it) titled Creative Enhancement. There is a little questionnaire […]

Do you fancy joining me in a 30 Day Creativity Challenge? First, let’s jump ahead to the back story – next year (late March) I will be leading a small group of seniors (through our local University of the Third Age) in a course titled, Unleashing Your Creative Spirit.

I am working with a small group of recently retired people to help them (and me) explore the transition to retirement in a positive and affirming way. I want to explore creativity in an upcoming session and I want to present it in a creative way. I want people to be able to see that creativity does not just belong to talented people who are artistic or gifted in such ways – that it is […]

creativity / You must be kidding?

Have you experienced a time where you wondered if the world has vanished and you are the only one left? Or could it be that I am the only one who is not overwhelmed with Easter guests and activities. I have sent copious emails, left messages on Facebook, finished reading my current books, caught up with all the items on my ‘to do’ list – in other words, I have been very productive. There is […]

As part of my challenge to be more creative, I decided I would cook something that I have never cooked before. I found a recipe for chicken cooked with spices from a cookbook called Indian Cooking for Australia by Gladys Roach. Here is the recipe for Masala Murghi. We enjoyed eating it and now that I have a better selection of spices I will experiment with another recipe next week :-).
