Delicious New Sizzlers: Letting Creativity Happen

Awake at dawn, I read for a while, jotted a few thoughts in my journal, balanced a bowl of cereal on the bed. The birds were singing and a cool spring breeze drifted in through my window, only slightly ajar. I snuggled into my blankets and began to drift back into sleep  … 
Suddenly the words, “delicious new sizzlers” popped into my head. I was awake enough to note the oddness of the phrase, and made myself write it down. I’m not sure where it came from, but I liked the sound of “delicious new sizzlers.” I love letting my brain play with words, combining them in new and unusual ways. And what better way to let the play happen than by encouraging this relaxed, dreamlike state?

  1. That state between waking and sleeping gives a person an energy flow that allows creativity and insight beyond almost any other time. Meditation and relaxation activities come close to that, but when it occurs naturally it’s a gift.
