It is really hard for the seeds of ideas to germinate in my head, when my mind is filled.with all kinds of clutter. Inspiration just does not just “pop” into my head. I have to clear the weeds and start with a clean slate. Where do I start? Sometimes I just go outside and enjoy the scenery of nature, listening to the singing of the birds or the hooting of a owl. Sometimes I get…
