Wondering What to Blog About

Some days are filled with ideas, some days are not. Today brought one of the not filled with ideas moments to me when I decided it was time to finally create a new post for this blog.
I'm feeling tired, a little concerned about on of our dog's health, and worn out after a lawn bowls game.

I also am contending with on and on barking from another of our dogs, and warfare happening on the TV screen about five metres from where I'm sitting (my son is home from school and killing the enemy, in his loving kind of way).

I didn't feel up to writing a lengthy piece on creativity, but I had to do something.

So I opened a blank page on my computer and started typing in phrases, just as they occurred to me, based on the theme of creativity and wellness. I did a couple of very scratchy Google searches first and got typing.

This is what I came up with, all within the space of about ten minutes.
  • Arts and good health
  • Creativity may ward against Alzheimer's disease
  • Dancing your way to happiness
  • Literature, thinking and health
  • New ideas, new ways of living and thinking
  • Creative crafts to help with arthritis
  • Sick of the daily grind of “What’s for tea”? Get creative, you’ll enjoy the cooking more, and they might get a pleasant surprise
  • So many writers are mad – does literature lead to insanity?
  • Creativity can help with depression
  • Creative people are fun people
  • Ideas are never totally bad, bad ideas lead the way to good ideas
  • Strengthen you child's chances in life, nurture them and nurture their creativity too

If I can do this, this quickly, imagine what you can do with more time and more research. Any one of my points could lead to something much, much bigger. And every person would come up with different results, because we are human beings, we are creative creatures!

Let you mind go free and ssee what you can come up with.

You should be concerned about the on and on BRAKING of one of your other dogs! His BRAKE LIGHTS are not working, and another of your dogs is sure to run up his "A**E"!!!

Ha ha, thank you so much Gordon. I am a good writer, I am not fantastic about picking up my own errors though. I was tired that day, and wrote it in a hurry, didn't proofread properly, blah, blah, blah.
You've made me smile, for which I thank you.
BTW the sick dog is well again, and the braking/barking dog will be barking again soon, I'm sure. She barks at the birds in the trees, trying to convince them to come down to ground level.
