My friend Susan blogged about a challenging quilt project she has coming up. She's wondering where her inspiration will come from. I replied, and our conversation went something like this:
ME: "You always come up with fantastic quilts Susan. I have no doubt that you'll do it again, and if you're anything like me, your inspiration will hit at 2am, or while in the shower."
SHE: "Why is that anyway? It seems like I always do my best thinking first thing in the morning while I'm in the shower!"
Is this a normal phenomenon? Do you do your best thinking in the shower? Those creative thoughts come at a price though. They drive out all of the other practical things we should be thinking of in the shower - like, "did I remember to shampoo my hair yet? Or did I just wet it???"
Of course, I was thinking about this in the shower this morning, and by the time I had gathered my thoughts for this post I had washed my body, shampooed my hair, then found myself pumping out more soap to wash again.... arghhh!!! ...at least, I think I had already washed once... Is it just me? Or is it my senior brain?
