    17, 25 November | ‘Zine Showcase’ in Toul Tompoung

    In the old days, maybe you used to buy a newspaper every morning, and read it while drinking your coffee. You could read, relax, and peruse the stories about people you might even know, in your community. You could enjoy the time alone, reading something fresh every single day about…

    Sarah Hotchkiss’ post about how not to write an artist statement, and what people in marketing can all learn about artist statements

    There’s a famous book by Seth Godin in which, over and over again, he writes, ‘You are an artist.’ I forgot if it was Linchpin or something else. Sorry, I can’t recall the details of this author whose works are so, so popular but I can’t remember the point of…

    22 October | Zine Launch in Phnom Penh

    I will have a kind of ‘show and tell’ event after Pchum Ben. It’s a Zine Launch, and it’s going to take the shape of a reading-sharing-make-and-take event that stretches out over a morning and through lunch and part of the afternoon. This is styled after my Seattle parties at…

  • How to spark creative thinking to generate new ideas

    How to spark creative thinking to generate new ideas

    Creative thinking and you. Creative thinking and the world. People and how they talk about it, why being ‘creative’ is sometimes confused with being ‘artistic.’ Why is the subject of being creative something that we overcomplicate? I believe that everyone can do something in a creative way. That’s taking the…

    Designing a new logo for Kismuth Books

    My site, Kismuth, has been quiet for a long time. I decided to refresh it and change the focus for it for the next few months. Writing books is great and I love writing them, but it’s not enough to simply post them and wonder if anyone cares. So, I…

    Metrics of Success, Issue #206 is ‘Run your own Race’

    ‘Run your own race, don’t compare your success to others and keep your eye on the prize,’ writes Danielle Page in this article on metrics of success. I like ‘run your own race.’ I’ve not seen that one before, cool. Like many other articles on the subject of success, Page…

    How can you prepare yourself to effortlessly engage in creative thinking

    At any given moment, things could shift. What will you do when that happens? Creative thinking can help when things look murky.   What is creative thinking? Let’s talk about what creative thinking is. When do you find yourself in flow? I feel that noticing when you are in flow is a…

    It’s the string that makes the necklace

    I made a limited edition of one issue of S P A C E for this week. It’s not for sale. It’s not for digitizing. It’s not for sharing. It’s just for… me. Sometimes it’s that simple. Do what you want.  Imagine. Wanting to do something just because you want…

    Psychologist Brian Little says personality can be summed, shaped by your choices of projects

    I found a new quiz, ‘Big Five.’ https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/personality-quiz/ It’s mentioned in psychologist Brian Little‘s 2017 article ‘How your to-do list shapes your personality — and how to use it to remake who you are’ at TED. The blurb to introduce it is: Many of us believe there are two driving forces…
