Taming and Training Your Creativity to Write Abundantly

The Museum of Four in the Morning

Leave a comment

It’s been a while since I’ve posted something random on my blog, but I do like sharing videos and articles that I come across in my internet travels (like this gem of a woman).

I’m managing a ‘flare up’ of my chronic fatigue at the moment. During these dips I have to be very careful about how much energy I expend. Although there are a number of things I would like to be doing right now (like making progress on the collaborative writing project I’m supposed to be working on) I view these down times as opportunities to feed my Creativity.

To do that I like meandering around the internet, reading and watching content from inspiring people.

Today I came across this TED talk from performance poet and multimedia artist Rives, discussing his odd obsession — collecting references in books, movies and poetry to ‘four in the morning.’

I can’t quite put my finger on why I find this so fascinating. Perhaps I’m intrigued by how something as random as 4 AM could be so much a part of our literary and film environment without us noticing. Or it could be admiration for someone who can happily and publicly embrace an interest in something other people might see as trivial.

Whatever it is, I found it interesting and thought I’d share it with you all.
