The flame of creative thought


Ideas, seminal thoughts, and the unique handmade truths of original thinking are a small flickering candle flame in the window of the mind. When you open it to the world, the winds of popularity quickly blow it out.

These small flames are lit in the quiet rooms behind our eyes, not the freeways and subways and stadiums of corporate or societal collectives.

Like social media.

Shut the window, turn out the lights, and turn off your phone. Then strike the match that kindles the fragile flame of originality. Allow the glow to warm to recesses of your digitally depressed inner processor.

Make this a part of your daily rhythm, and soon the glow emanating from the windows of your mind will change the world around you.
