What do you get when you take equal portions of Abba, Star Wars and Euro Disco and mix them all together. You get Sheila & B. Devotion with videos like this from 1979. In 1979 I was a “player” which now I learned is a “Spacer”, now I’m just a maker.
The premise that we need to have an empty mind to be creative sometimes has some merit. When I do travel I worry if I will have enough to do so I load up the media players, laptops and tablets with stuff to keep me busy. I don’t allow myself the luxury of “nothing”. Scott Adams of “Dilbert” fame has a very good article in the Wall Street Journal on this topic.
