FRIENDS & CREATIVITY

MUSINGS ON TREASURES
MY FRIENDS ARE MY ESTATE
Emily Dickinson


A group of fraternity brothers have gathered
again for our twice a year encampment.
These are our oldest friendships and over
the years they have grown to be more
important and enjoyable. Wives have become
friends, we have shared troubles and tribulations
and watched changes and the constant remains
our love for each other. These people
and these times together are treasures indeed.


I GET BY WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS
John Lennon


A WORTHY HUMAN ENDEAVOR-
CREATIVITY
No doubt, it is because of the way I am hard wired that 
I think creative endeavors are the highest and holiest
of human activities.  In a sense it is an emulation
life itself-giving birth to something new. It is
an "aping" of the Creator.
Thanks to friends at the WCI for finding
a great thought from our beloved Indiana writer
Kurt Vonnegut


"Nobody will stop you from creating. 
Do it tonight. Do it tomorrow. 
That is the way to make your soul grow - 
whether there is a market for it or not! 
The kick of creation is the act of creating, 
not anything that happens afterward. 
I would tell all of you watching this screen: 
Before you go to bed, write a four line poem. 
 Make it as good as you can. 
Don't show it to anybody. 
Put it where nobody will find it. 
And you will discover that you have your reward." 
                          ~Kurt Vonnegut



Think about a friend today and then
think something new.
See you down the trail.
