The idea of just "stating the obvious" is enormously liberating. Whereas if I said, tell me something not obvious, I will be met with silence.

Have you ever had one of those days when the ideas just flowed? It is almost as though a switch had been flipped. If one could find that switch at will, one could be brilliant for ever. Usually, the switch is not accessible.

Reading Ron Padgett or Bernadette Mayer is good short-cut for me. Reading these authors I inevitably get ideas of my own.
