What is creativity? Is it when, as a child we could entertain ourselves with the simplest of objects? I have a friend who's daughter makes snakes out of packaging peanuts. Then she colors them, then names them, and finally puts them in their own little home, which is a mailing box. Is it seeing something others don't? Is it having a certain talent that seems to come naturally to you? Or a talent you had to nurture and work hard at?
Well yes, it is all those and more. Being creative is interpretation. Taking your history, your background and your environment and seeing things through your own unique vision. And sometimes the simplest perception illuminates your idea or feeling, and connects us to something bigger that we all share in but haven't been able to express so vividly until now. Creativity is desire, need, motivation and inspiration.
