Creativity is an interesting concept… a widely used word to mean so much and to be applied to so many.
Creative… I think of “creativity” as the wherewithal… the elusive ingredient that makes it all happen… the driving force… the inexplicable… for without it, life is dry and meaningless.
Every person is creative in their own way… with their unique signature… there is no set definition, no rules to be adhered to… Creativity just is.

Creativity has a mind of it’s own… it’s never a set piece and never predictable. Like the elements of nature, creativity cannot be contained.
Creativity can be the source of profound joy and at the same time a great hindrance.
Lives are lived and lives are lost in the name of creativity.

How do we stay creative? How do we nurture our creative intuition and enable ourselves?
For me it’s simple… Beauty is my creative trigger. A mere glance in the right direction can spark a million thoughts…
Beauty manifests itself in the everyday and in the extraordinary… to me, that means that creativity is never far away.

That’s not to say that creativity can be taken for granted.
Creativity can disappear on a whim… feel neglected and offer up the cold shoulder.
Creativity can be equally as elusive and as magical as a rainbow.
Like all rewards, creativity requires work. I don’t believe that it can flourish unaided. Creativity deserves and demands respect…

If beauty is my catalyst then I must have my eyes wide open, I must truly see and observe my surroundings… and I must travel through life with an open mind.
