Creative writers are never bored with the world around them.
There is always something new for a child. People (Adults) are bored because they think there is nothing new.
People tend to be uptight/worried about why others around them think of them.
Artists have to become "as children" again---freshness of view. Look at things around them as if you have never seen them before.
People don't like to admit they are or have experienced something.
They don't learn from the experience and, thus, don't grow.
There is no limit to human growth except that which is self-imposed.
A wise human has the wisdom to see that every day is a brand new one, no matter if apparently a "dull" routine.
Creative people try to live lives that are spontaneous, non-scheduled.
Watching your reactions to things experienced tells you about YOU.

This blog is about all I can remember about John Hahn, who taught creative writing at Rio Hondo. He died in 2006 and this is my way of remembering him. If anyone else remembers him, please comment or contact me.
