I was sitting on my deck the other day, taking a moment to myself, and I closed my eye and listened to the sounds of my neighborhood. During those few minutes I had a creative moment.
Do you ever use the sounds around you as inspiration?
I realized while sitting there listening to the wind blow through the trees, the birds singing, and a near by sprinkler, that if you relax your mind and enjoy the sounds around you it gets the ideas to flowing.
I think sounds regardless of where you live can be inspiring. I remember when I lived in New York City the sounds of the traffic and the people were great for sparking new ideas.
Listening to music, sitting in a park and listening to kids play, even just the sound of a fan has it benefits for sparking your creativity.
What sounds do you enjoy for creating creative moments?
