“Creativity is piercing the mundane to find the marvelous.” — Bill Moyers
One does not need to be, specifically, an artist or musician, a poet, actor or architect to be creative. I believe that the way we live our lives is our grandest expression of our creativity. Everything we do is creativity in one form or another. I encourage people to look at their lives as creative acts, because there is freedom and empowerment in that perspective. Here’s what some very creative voices have to say about creativity:
Erich Fromm: “Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.” Sophia Loren: “The Fountain of Youth is the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love.” Jimmy Buffett: “If you go with your instincts and keep your humor, creativity follows.” Kurt Cobain: “When creativity flows, it flows.” Frank Capra: “A hunch is creativity trying to tell you something.” Rollo May: “Creativity must be married to the passion to live beyond one’s death.”
Here’s to living our art, our most creative lives.
