Q: How can people live more creatively?

A: ‘Taking advantage of opportunities that arise with an open mind allows one to access mental possibility. I often refer to my mind as a faucet of creativity that I turn on and off – which is easier after I have explored or learned something new that inspires me. Looking at art, focusing intently on a song, taking a walk through a park, a mall or a touristy location are all ways to turn on the faucet of creative flow.’”
