As for me (guess I should start it since I asked the question....)
I love to take hot morning baths and soak until I actually become an awake and functioning human being. During that time of the morning, somewhere between half-asleep and half-awake, it is like my mind is on auto-pilot. That is when synapses not joined before connect and an idea or concept is either born or clarified. AND I get all prune-like....lost in the creative process...... OK...TMI??
Now, you CAN'T feel intimidated to share after all can you?
