Why Creativity Stew?

cropped-cropped-cropped-eggplants.jpgCreativity, like cooking a delicious stew, is intuitive alchemy. In the spirit of Abraham Maslow’s often repeated quote, “a first-rate soup is more creative than a second-rate painting, “creativity is universal, even if undervalued or unrecognized among humans.

You will find here a fairly self-centered exploration of the stuff that interests me; the forgotten or ignored coincidences, anecdotes and tips-of-the-trade that weave together the journey of the creative genius. Upon closer look, this is where we find the common elements of life that bind us all.

I will explore excellence, willingness, perseverance, left-brained research, right-brained processing, elaboration and curiosity; the root of all these things is play.  In the end, there is no lasting purpose to creativity other than the experience of well-being.
