Introduction -- What is the Life of My Mind all about?

Welcome to The Life of Your Mind! This is a blog about Creativity: what enhances it, what hinders it? What are the optimal conditions for  your Creativity to flow? 

I'm so in awe of the process of creating something that didn't exist before. It's something precious to me.  I've been a songwriter since the tender age of twelve, but most of my years of writing were unproductive. It took me decades to finally relax, enjoy myself, not fret if a new tune didn't knock me out, just keep going because it's fun! It's become one of the great joys of my life. And, I've become my own best friend in the process! 

How about you?  What do you create -- songs, poems, books, buildings, sweaters, airplanes? Do you consider yourself a creative person? How are your ideas flowing these days? 

I would LOVE to hear your thoughts.  Tell me about yourself below!
