Is your lightbulb moment just a shower away? | Virgin

The Virgin site posted some really good thoughts on where to look for and how to trigger “Lightbulb Moments”. Just remember that they don’t have to be perfect…after all, we’re only #rentingthecoffee.

…For a writer with writer’s block or a creative who can’t choose what they’re going to create next, lightbulb moments sound elusive and impossible to create. But really, it’s all about giving your brain some time to recover, and recharge. Whether that’s by going for a coffee break at 11am and forcing yourself to stare out of the window and just look outside, or going for a quick morning swim to recharge your batteries, there are easy ways to create inspiration that don’t involve booking a one-way trip to the mountains.

Makes me want to get the Tent out…

I really need to do some camping….I guess it isn’t really “winter camping” in Southern California…. 😉

REI’s 5 REASONS TO GO CAMPING IN THE WINTER

Winter isn’t known as camping season, but just because the temperatures dip, it doesn’t mean you have to pack your tent away. If you haven’t gone camping in the winter before, I have 5 reasons you should try it this season…..

Cold

From a few years ago….when I lived somewhere it got cold….

Renting the Coffee

It was cold outside
And because the kids were away
It was quiet in the house
And it would be all day.

I was working from home
with three cats sleeping near
That I’d be getting lots done
was ever so clear.

So I routed the laundry
While I reviewed a technical doc
Planned out my day
Using my calendar and clock.

There’d be time for a workout
and a quick bite to eat.
But mostly there’d be email, reports, and phone calls
while I sat in my seat.

So I wrote this quick poem
To add a little fun
While I considered the weather
and whether it was too cold to run.
