Where do ideas come from?
Filmmaker David Lynch (Wild at Hearth, Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks) wrote a little book, Catching the big fish, that provides a rare window into his method as an artist, his personal working style, and the immense creative benefits he has experienced from the practice of meditation.
Lynch describes the experience of “diving within” and “catching” ideas like fish – and then preparing them for television, movie screens, and other mediums in which he works.
Do you have any methods that are bringing you closer to your ideas? If so, I love to read those in a comment below. I really appreciate it when people reply with thoughtful comments. Honestly, it makes my day.
Catching the big fish is an intriguing little book for those who wonder how they can nurture their own creativity.
He turned one into gold: Interview Project
And he did’t with a Webby Award in 2010. In my eyes, it’s a very original blog. I loved it, and watched many episodes. Every episode of the Interview project gives you a small glance on ordinary and less ordinary lives of american people. Watch some, when you need some distraction, most of them touches you on a deep emotional level.
What I hope you take from this little blog post is that you know you are free and able to do anything you set your mind to. Ideas are floating around. You just have to grab them. Living is easy.
“ Life is a very simple game, and in that simplicity you enjoy. Life is not for thinking, it is to be lived and enjoyed. And if we think too much then we complicate the heart and mind and we spoil the game.”
