Sunk in your own thoughts, you may be only peripherally aware of what's going on around you. In fact, you may be so preoccupied that you bump into a table or bark your shin on a curb. Pull yourself out of dreamland when you get behind the wheel of the car, however. Inspired creative ideas may churn up from your subconscious. Don't dismiss them without examining all the angles.

When the last living thing
Has died on account of us,
How poetical it would be
If Earth could say,
In a voice floating up
From the floor
Of the Grand Canyon,
"It is done.
People did not like it here."
