#VideoOfTheWeekend : How To Be Creative
(9 mins) Creativity has always been essential for our cultural growth, but there are still many misconceptions about this elusive process. Not the left-brain/right-brain binary that we've come to believe, being creative is considerably more complex, and requires a nuanced understanding of ourself and others. Being a powerful creative person involves letting go of preconceived notions of what an artist is, and discovering and inventing new processes that yield great ideas. Most importantly, creators must push forward, whether the light bulb illuminates or not.

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running - Haruki Murakami

Murakami began running seriously when he was 33, in 1982. In recent years he has covered an average of six miles a day, six days a week and has competed in more than 20 marathons. In 1996 he completed an ultramarathon of 62 miles. [...] To give up running would be like giving up writing, which would be like giving up living (goo.gl/gLk9wv)

Drugs and Click™ ! (the red-headed-brother club of +Drink and Click™ )
Join me in the desert for a PhotoWalk!  Everyone is invited...

RSVP at http://goo.gl/V5EFUW :)  

Burning Man PhotoWalk - All Levels Welcome.  All Ages Welcome.  All [Dress] Welcome.

This will be A M A Z I N G !  I can't wait to walk around the desert with all of you and see what there is to be seen and see beyond that.  Come alone or bring a friend (no worries, you'll make new friends too!) -- we will have a great time.

When:  6 PM on Wednesday Aug 28.
Where:  Outside of Center Camp - between Center Camp and The Man

Are you just a beginner with a small camera or mobile phone?  No worries - you are more than welcome! :)  This is a very friendly group, and we will walk around for a few hours through the sunset and see where the winds take us.  Just look for me and +Cliff Baise  and +Curtis Simmons and... well shoot a bunch of awesome people with cameras!  We'll be there and ready to go! :)

BTW +Lotus Carroll and +Juan Gonzalez  - it's time to step up your +Drink and Click™ game a little to compete with this club.  I'm not sure we'll take a lot of photos, but we will have a lot of snacks.
