Test Your Creativity

When I was in graduate school my professor Morgan Worthy Ph.D. published a book on creativity.  If my memory doesn’t fail me, it was called Aha!  Tonight while readying for the carpet installers, I came across a page from it and thought I’d share:

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
