My sister has told me about a book called "Improv Wisdom" by Patricia Ryan Madson.
"A book that teaches the principles of improvisation as a guidance for a life of adventure and meaning"
In order to help people live more creatively the book suggests maxims such as: "don't prepare, just show up" and "be average", offering simple exercises to do, to help you to achieve this. I listened to a 20min Podcast with Patricia Ryan Madson which was quite interesting, so see what you think. Patricia, a retired Drama Professor, originally used her maxims while teaching drama courses, but soon realised that her wisdom could help other people too, especially in the business and IT sector. I look forward to reading the book. If you are interested have a look at the improv wisdom site or visit Patricia's Blog The Wisdom of Improv
The sketch is of my son and our cat Phoebe. He had just climbed out of bed and was still half asleep, which was good, because it meant he was prepared to keep still for me while I sketched.
