Good Morning

Dear Children, GOOD MORNING!

Akkaiah is associating me to hospital, this morning. I am now ready to go. Akkaiah comes here in couple of minutes.

Thanks dear Ranamma, and Ajay Naana for forwarding your pictures taken on the occasion of Sankranthi at Seattle. The pictures are lovely, really. And it is great that you people are the members of the Organizing Committee this time.

More in my next email, HAVE A NICE DAY, DEAR ALL.

With Love, Naana.

* Always carry a small notebook and a pen or pencil around with you. That way, if you are struck by an idea, you can quickly note it down. Upon rereading your notes, you may discover about 90% of your ideas are daft. Don't worry, that's normal. What's important are the 10% that are brilliant.

* If you can't think, go for a walk. A change of atmosphere is good for you and gentle exercise helps shake up the brain cells.

* Read as much as you can about everything possible. Books exercise your brain, provide inspiration and fill you with information that allows you to make creative connections easily.

* Exercise your brain. Brains, like bodies, need exercise to keep fit. If you don't exercise your brain, it will get flabby and useless. Exercise your brain by reading a lot, talking to clever people and disagreeing with people - arguing can be a terrific way to give your brain cells a workout.

* Creativity is a type of learning process where the teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.

* Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.

* Creativity comes from trust. Trust your instincts. And never hope more than you work.
