I cherish the simplicity of a clean workspace on my computer. My wallpaper is a simple black. Almost.
One of the simple joys of parenthood has been the rediscovery of the Dr. Seuss books I read as a kid, plus a few I wasn’t familiar with. Everytime we read Dr. Seuss I come away with a smile on my face and a stirring in my soul. If I have a creative superhero, he is it, and that is why this quote from him stretches boldly across the bottom of my screen:
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
Creativity comes when you find your voice and let it be heard without worrying how it will be received. There is little doubt this advice worked for Dr. Seuss, and so I try to live this way too.
If you don’t mind.
