There are a thousand other ways of finding ideas, such as overhearing conversations in parks or on buses, and I’ll detail some of those ways in Staying Engaged Forever. But for now, for our larger goals of figuring out what the heck it is we need to say, I’m recommending we try to overhear the conversations of our own subconscious.
We maybe have already been listening, in which case, maybe we have already ideas and images. We just need to trust them, commit to them and attend to them.
It’s always about ATTENTION. When we pay attention to the images in our heads and bodies, they grow. When we pay attention to the images we’ve committed to paper, they grow into stories, poetic images and other living things.
