Creative Toolkit

“While we have the gift of life, it seems to me the only tragedy is to allow part of us to die — whether it is our spirit, our creativity or our glorious uniqueness.” Gilda Radner

I’m not a traveler. I’d rather read a book about a place than actually go there. I like to take care of my cats, sleep in my own bed and have my things around me, all things that are not possible (unless you’re in a motor home) when traveling.

It is odd, therefore, that an ebook called a Creative Toolkit for Travelers caught my eye. Written and sold by Cynthia Morris, a writing and creativity coach based in Boulder, CO. I’ve subscribed to her newsletter for several years and enjoyed her book, Create Your Writer’s Life, which is a visual delight as well as a source of information and inspiration. I figured I could benefit from using her tools for travelers right here in Denver as I wander the city.

The ebook didn’t disappoint me. The first tool I want to use is a postcards, in fact dozens of postcards. These days of email overload, everybody I know is thrilled to get an actual physical letter or card in the mail. You can make your own cards or use commercial cards.

Another tool she recommends is the Moleskin Japanese Accordion book. You can buy one for $9.95 at Amazon, but I think I’ll make my own. It’s all part of the creative process.
