something worth sharing….

Weekly Challenge: Creativity

Creativity: The ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination: 

Being an avid Blogger, (my new hobby!) you tend to come across blogs, videos & photo’s that are brilliant.  You can’t help but wish that you had come up with that idea first.


Like, for instance, Brandon, the guy from New York who created the Facebook and Tumblr pages, “Humans of New York.”   Each day, he randomly picks strangers out of the blue, takes their photograph and writes a one or two sentence blurb about them.  A super condensed version of “their story.”  He has about a gazillion followers.  He has been featured on every news show from here to the end of the earth.  And has been written up in The Huffington Post, The Wall Street Journal & CBS New York…just to name a few.  All because he had a great idea.  Well Shoot!  I could have done that.  But he thought of it first.

And how about that  Jenny Lawson – The Bloggess ~ She has millions of followers and fans.  She’s an accomplished blogger and a published author.  She’s amazingly witty.  (Cracks me up!!)   “She’s like Mother Teresa, Only Better.”  Well, shoot.  I could be like Mother Theresa!  She thought of it first, tho.

tumblr_static_bloggesslogo__1_For the past week, I have been stuck in the house.  Mainly because I am not feeling my usual 110%.  But also because the Polar Vortex has caused our tempts to plummet to about -100º and has dumped about 200 feet of snow on us.  Ok, I exaggerate.  But man, we have a TON of it.  It’s all very stressful!!


Since I have been hibernating indoors, I have been spending just a tad bit more time online.  I’ve been surfing WordPress.  And boy oh boy I have found some amazing stuff!  There’s more creative people than you could ever, ever imagine.  It’s truly amazing!  (How do they do it?)

I consider myself a blogger with impeccable taste.   An Über Blogger, if you will.   Brilliant, even!  (I kid!!… it’s the cabin fever setting in.)  And because of this, I am going to share with you a little Vimeo I ran across.  I think you are going to be as blown away from it as I was.  So, Rick Mereki, Thank you for your brilliance and for sharing with the world, your creative Vimeo.  I wish I had thought of this first!!!

  1. Quite true: they’re all only ideas … But that’s the thing: I know for a fact that I can’t write fiction, which must mean that I have no imagination, yes? 😐 I for one am never going to come up with an idea like any of those. Sighhh …


  2. boy, I really would like to think ‘I could do that.’ what a joke! There is absolutely no way I could even think how he did that. I will just sit back and marvel at the talent of people. This was the absolute coolest, though!


  3. Each of has something unique inside of us that needs to be shared. Our world is full of sound bytes and flashy images attracted to get your attention. I prefer a witty blog, or a soulful one, or beautiful art. You can tell if someone has put their whole heart into it, and revealed something of themselves. They don’t have to be politically correct, in fact it’s more fun if they’re not. That to me is the greatest treasure.


  4. Loved the video! Thanks for sharing. I had to google vimeo – not sure what that says about me. Then again, I still use and love my Blackberry 🙂
    Such a fun visit to your blog 🙂


  5. Thank you for liking my post. I’m like you, wishing I could come up with one great idea that would make my blog unique. Instead I’m all over the place but come to think of it that’s what I’m like in real life, always trying new things.


  6. What a delight you are!! What a fun experience reading your blog here. I laughed out loud at your Well, shoot’s!. I am so happy to know that you visited my blog, too, and like my latest post, Bel Canto. I plan on reading more of what you write!
