It’s time for a creative do-over.

Over the past 3 years I have been privy to the slow decline of my creative flow. I have been a witness and an active participant, a victim and a sadistic well wisher slowly twisting the knife. Firmly entrenched now in middle age, fatherhood and too much soul sucking work I sense a growing void, a disconnection and a dullness creeping over my life. And it’s gotta stop. Now.

I am hoping this public forum cronicling my creative recovery will keep me accountable and committed to the task. It also may provide fodder for public humiliation and an opportunity for hecklers and miscreants to blow off some steam. I’m ok with that  – meaning that I don’t have a whole lot to lose at this point and part of this experiment is to forget about pleasing other people. So feel free to bring it and I will respond in kind.

I hope you will join me with stories of inspiration and frustration in your own creative endeavors. I know how important this feels for me, and for this world in general to have more people committed to creative work and creative solutions to our growing list of potentially calamitous outcomes.

I am starting this blog on January 1, 2013. I don’t know how long it will last. I hope to build it up over time as I learn more and connect with new ideas and people, and recover something I’ve lost, and that I desperately and whole heartedly need back.

Thanks for reading and sharing.
