Sometimes the best resources to draw on for continuing creativity come from others in the creative community.
In my everlasting quest to keep my creative juices flowing, I love to find a new book, visit a new city, and check out Web sites that I've never heard of before. I thought it might be fun to put together a survey so we can all have the benefit of our collective knowledge.
If you'd like to participate, please type the answers in an email and send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll share the best answers in an upcoming article. Answer as many or as few as you'd like... remember, we're a creative community! There is a Stu update at the end of the survey.
When you send your email, please let me know if it's OK to use your name when these are reprinted. We don't want Fred and Freda to see themselves and get mad.
The Stu Update. My father passed away on Sunday, January 13. He died in his sleep, the way he wanted. Although words don't do my feelings justice, thank you to the 200 of you who sent me your thoughts after the last article about Stu.
I wrote the eulogy for his funeral with the help of the rest of my family. It's not a sad dirge, but a tribute to a dad I'll miss a lot. If you'd like to find out why he was so special, take a look at the eulogy at Stickyideas.com. Have a great weekend.
