    Excellent piece on how creativity is part of the human condition and not necessarily just for those more talented in a creative sense.

    Hey

    Nice to see you here Adrienne!

    You are creative and I would totally agree, there is always some amount of creativity in all of us. Creativity doesn’t mean painting like Picasso or penning down poems like Keats, it is what you do differently and beautifully and how it truly defines your true passion!

    I’m so glad you talked about how creativity is innate in all of us. So many times I hear people say “I wish I was creative” or “I’m not creative”…they think being creative is just a fine arts thing. Thanks for this beautiful post!

    Hi Adrienne! I agree – everyone can be creative in some way, it’s just a question of finding your talent and/or passion. And finding a supportive group of people is probably just as important. Thanks to both you and Stu for encouraging and sharing with others!

    It is so true, Li. That’s another thing that is innate in us: the need for others! Thanks you!

    When Picasso was asked what was art, his reply was: ‘What isn’t?’
    He’s also on the record with this one: ‘We’re all born artists, it’s
    just that not many of us manage to carry it through into adulthood.’

    Instead of spending billions on arms, governments should be investing in
    maintaining the creativity in us through life. Then there’d be no need to send
    us to war. The potential of the great majority of us wouldn’t be
    squandered so frivolously.

    What a lovely post! I agree with you, and one of my new year’s resolution is to explore more my creative side. There is a lot to do, and I don’t know where the journey will take me…

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.
