I love getting high. I find it helps me to get into a creative state a lot quicker... And generally, it just makes my head work better.
So, this morning I dug out my finest tracksuit trousers, strapped up my hiking boots, and set off walking up a massive hill.
Walking is one of my favourite forms of exercise. I reckon I was meant for endurance, rather than sprints... So it suits my body better than basketball or fighting.
Anyway, I'm going off topic as usual. I think walking up big hills on your own is good for the soul. We don't get enough alone time, and thinking time, these days. It's a bloody shame.
I'm a firm believer that to have good ideas and to be inspired, you must be in the right environment.
If you're trying to solve a problem or be 'creative' in a place where you feel bored, tired or even oppressed, then you're setting yourself up for a proper struggle.
The key is to want to be where you have to be. And to want to do what you have to do. Those are my primary goals, in all areas of my life.
Walking up hills and having time to think is really bloody important to me. It's one of the reasons I wear hiking boots 99% of the time... I'm always ready to go.
The best artists, poets, writers and thinkers had time where they locked themselves away and had space for 'deep thinking'.
Time alone is what keeps me 'sane'... Some folks who know me may disagree with that statement, and they're entitled to.
But I like getting high and thinking. So I'm gonna keep on doing it.
If it ain't broke. Don't fix it.
