Works for me. #creativity
Image via Diego Sevilla Ruiz A certain Zen proverb goes something like this: 'A five year old can understand it, but an 80 year old cannot do it.' The subject of this riddle-like saying has been described as 'mindfulness'---or being absorbed in the moment, free from routine mental habits.

Nature is the #1 source of inspiration for artists and designers. #creativityatwork   #design  
The world of fashion often draws heavily upon the natural world to drive its creativity, and is precisely this link that Russian artist Liliya Hudyakova has such a good eye for. Her Fashion & Nature photo series pairs accomplished fashion designers' dresses and other pieces with the natural views that she imagines might have inspired them.

Yikes! "The more that computers are able to recognize and judge creativity, the more they will be able to take on roles within the art world that once belonged solely to humans." http://ow.ly/Oypnn
A new advance in machine intelligence could change the way we think about creativity.

Noticed: when creative people encounter a block, they revisit their childhood and revive their creativity. Sting is a prime example.
Looking back may help you look forward.
