Check this out. Go to this link, then to "exercises" on the menu on the left side of the page, and then click on the green dot experiment. It will be about halfway down the exercises page. Here's the link:

Fun. Weird. I love stuff like this. Did the pink dots disappear for you when you?

It's truly a trick of the "mind's eye." It will get you thinking about perspective. What's REALLY there? Oh the precariousness of certainty!

Also found these great inspiring quotes on creativity:

The first step in being creative is this: Get Started! 

"The easiest thing to do on earth is not write."(William Goldman)

"Writing is 90 percent procrastination: reading magazines, eating cereal out of the box, watching infomercials. It's a matter of doing everything you can to avoid writing, until it is about four in the morning and you reach the point where you have to write."
(Paul Rudnick)

"The art of writing is the art of applying the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair." (Mary Heaton Vorse)
    "One of the most difficult things is the first paragraph. I have spent many months on a first paragraph, and once I get it, the rest just comes out very easily." (Gabriel Garcia Marquez)

    "The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one." (Mark Twain)
