Day 105: Daydream Believer...

Today, I'm not really sure what to write about. I think about something like blogging, putting a picture on, maybe a writing exercise, but nothing captures my imagination, so how can I ever hope it will inspire yours?

So, as I sit here on my bed, looking out the window I see a little spider, shaking in the wind on its web. It doesn't move, trying to be invisible from the world. But when it thinks no one is watching a few of its legs wriggle around. Is it hoping for a fly? Is it thinking about putting in a new web line? Is it even thinking at all?

'Hello, little spider.'

Do spiders even have ears to hear or do they react only to movement? Maybe if you have 8 eyes you don't need ears...Did you know that the web of a spider is stronger than lead, if they were the same thickness? What amazing creatures.

I killed a spider the other day because it freaked me out as it crawled up the inside of my trouser leg. And I ruined a web (which is actually a whole home) by walking through it. I'm not proud of either of these things (as a vegetarian), but I feel better for telling you about it.

So, what has all of this gabble got to do with creativity? Well, I think there is a lot to be said for daydreaming, for spending time thinking about little things like spiders. You never know when a daydream could turn into an idea, something that could be used in your creative works. I get a lot of ideas from daydreaming and I am proud to call myself one. Yes I might miss a few train stops or bus stops whilst doing it, or I might walk into a spider's web but it is worth it and I couldn't be any other way.

You get where I'm coming from?

I hope you enjoyed my daydream today. Feel free to share yours with me too! Give a little time to daydreaming.You never know where it might take you, or me, or anyone for that matter...
