WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR IDEAS?
“Where do you get your ideas?”
People ask me this every so often. “From everywhere,” I answer. The people always look puzzled. This wasn’t the answer they were expecting.
“Look around you,” I say. “Everything around you, everything in the Universe were once ideas!”
Most people do not share my enthusiasm. Some people get what I am saying, but most frown and pretend to understand.
“Can I say something?”
“What would you like to say, Pencil?”
“I enjoy helping you to write the ideas you get from the Universe.”
“I appreciate your help, Pencil.”
“What about me? I help, too.”
“That you do, Paper, that you do. You and Pencil help me to write a draft of what I will later revise when I post online. Thanks to both of you. I am grateful that there is never a shortage of ideas, or the tools to help me express them.”
