Thoughts Spawned by Collecting Thoughts

Bookmarked Hen Laying Eggs by Austin Kleon (Austin Kleon)

On Thoreau, collage, fireworks, and nest eggs.

Collecting thoughts leads to more, new thoughts. Let’s see where this mind garden takes me 😉

Something catches your attention — a scrap of material, or a scrap of thought — and if you save it, it becomes a nest egg… more things will gather around it until you have something new.

— Austin Kleon

Inspired by Thoreau, who I liked when I read in high school, but haven’t read since out of wariness that he’s just a dick.
