We are ALL original, unique and creative. All people should work towards tapping into their creative abilities and unleashing their imaginations. Why?
First because it is impossible that you have no creative gift. Second: the only way to make it live and increase is to use it. Third: you cannot be sure that it is not a great gift. (Brenda Ueland, 1891-1985)
The creative spirit is in us now, it’s who we are. Brenda Ueland goes on to say….
The imagination needs moodling — long inefficient, happy idling, dawdling, and puttering. People who are always briskly doing something and as busy as waltzing mice, they have little, sharp, staccato ideas…But they have no slow, big ideas.
Big ideas often come to us during periods of ‘ laziness’ – it is during the time we are away from the direct challenges of work that our creative spirit is energised.
