I take a little notepad or use my phone to record ideas. I won't say the ideas that I get are GOOD, but at least they show up while I'm moving around. (less)

“The truth is, you can be good at a lot of things, and they don’t have to be related to each other at all. Their common thread is your own curiosity. It's your primary driver. Curiosity. Pursuing new interests is what keeps you grounded as a person. Following those interests until you get good at them is what makes you a strong person. Having the inquisitiveness and imagination to engage, and the perseverance to continue, makes you a special person.”
John Egenes, Man & Horse: The Long Ride Across America

“They say that wisdom is a marriage of experience and compassion. Dreams are born of compassion and realized through experience.”
