Hi, I've been around but don't post much.  Not much of a writer.  Some of my art is on my profile.  Retired, I do a lot of painting and write poetry.  I am a recovering alcoholic, 15 years now, and have been diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic, doing well on medication.  I would like to share something I do when I'm not feeling particularly inspired.  Get out my pan watercolors and color wheel, think of a color that speaks to me, pick out a color scheme from the color wheeel using that color, start painting random shapes and work them into an abstract painting.  Play, don't try to be good.  Sometimes that gets me going.  I  enjoy reading the posts on this site.  I think most of you all are smarter than me.

Maybe somebody is smarter than you or I, dorthart, but that sounds very creative to me.  Personally I compose a bit of amateur poetry, that gives me a sense of inspiration.
