“between heartbeats”

“While working, I hold my creation in my fingers. Even one’s heartbeat disturbs such minute work, so particularly delicate work has to be done between heartbeats,”

— Vladimir Aniskin, microminiaturist from Russia, creator of (quite possibly) the world’s tiniest book.

 

“…just let the mind wander”

“What Victor and others with his dementia can teach us is that the key to creativity might lie in our ability to suspend conscious scrutiny, if only for a moment, and just let the mind wander.”

“Dementia and the Keys to Creativity” by Dr. Sternberg, The Wall Street Journal, Review, Saturday/Sunday, February 20–21, 2016
