    Amen! Pass the plate! 🙂 Speaking of church, my dad found creative ways to fall asleep without appearing so. Of course, the snores gave him away every time…

    I’m in 100 percent agreement with you on this Stu. No matter who you are, you’re creative. Even if it’s the way you put dishes away in the dishwasher. Of course, I am the mastahhh at this and so that position is filled. 😀

      I feel if people saw this, they MIGHT not be so…nah…even if they realized it, they still would oppose the arts as anything worthwhile.

      we are all creative, it’s just how you look at it. Thanks Maureen

    Thanks for pointing out that creativity isn’t exclusively for artists and musicians 🙂 It’s a very positive word in contrast to ‘troubleshooting’ ;)… lol…tried and tested 😉

    It always amazes me when people whose living depends on creative thinking don’t recognize that thinking is creative. Even ministers who live by a very specific book of rules have to apply those rules in a creative way to help guide people. Creativity exist in every thought we make. I believe that.

    YES! It is so important that people realize everyone is and needs to be creative to be alive and thriving. Creativity exists all around and in us and when we tap our powers of creativity we are more fully experiencing the world around us.

    The question is not whether or not we are/ can be creative. The question is how we can make best use of our powers of creativity in solving problems, working with people, making new “things” (including art, food, technology, meaning, physical and non-material inventions, etc.).

    When education and early life experiences lay a solid foundation, people learn that they are creative in hundreds of ways and settings. Most people seem to end up refining their idea of what it means to be creative to focus on a few aspects of their lives, since it can be somewhat overwhelming to think each problem through anew and be creative in solving it. But we do have the potential to reflect on our habits and step back and create new ways of thinking about our lives. And then we can choose what problems to focus on and bring new creative energy to solving them, whatever they might be. Which is pretty creative in my opinion.

      Denise…you gave me my next post: How Can We Use Creativity (or something like that). thank you . It is about how we try to not do the same old, which leaves us where we are now. Thanks.
