Rest...

My voice teacher said something great in my voice class today, she almost always says something of great significance every class, but this I had to share.

She said that often times the great ideas don't come to us at our most stimulated moments, they often come to us when we are at our moments of rest. Our minds are free to wander and are usually more open to those ideas that are trying to enter. We get so consumed with school, work, art, theatre, writing, essays, projects, Facebook, television, blah, blah, blah! We often forget what it feels like to just slow down and do nothing for a little while.

So I am going to go take a nap, probably daydream before that, and then dream some more after that, and who knows, I may receive a rich idea that I otherwise wouldn't have gotten...
