Welcome to another Tuesday with TED. This week we’re watching Cloud Appreciation Society founder Gavin Pretor-Pinney who says you don’t need to plan an exotic trip to find creative inspiration. Just look up.
As he shares photos of nature’s finest aerial architecture, Pretor-Pinney calls for us to take a step off the digital treadmill, lie back, and admire the beauty in the sky. He shows how seemingly idle pursuits provide unexpected paths to appreciating overlooked wonders and enhancing our health and creativity.
This is a wonderful talk. Enjoy!
Did you learn something new about clouds? I did. What I liked best was the reminder to slow down. My favorite quote: “Cloud spotting legitimizes doing nothing.”
Do you need to slow down? Do you think slowing down might enhance your creativity?
Until next time,
