Quote 6/2019 : Creativity

IMG_20180912_111546_446.jpg

I am amazed at the beauty of language as I am amazed at creation itself. Alphabets are to chromosomes as words are to genes maybe. Different combinations, different permutations and you have a zillion different stories, poems, art, as you have people.

Do you agree? Have you ever felt in awe of creation and in the same light of literature, poetry and art? I have and I do…all the time.

    Hi Smitha, First I’d like to thank you for the kind remarks you made on my post “Troubled Times.” I’ve been so out of it with my blogging for the past few months so now I’m trying to get back into the blogging world. I hope to have a few posts soon!

    I liked this post very much. Your question is a good one. How do we feel about creativity? I’ve had some thoughts lately on that very subject. I’m currently in the revision stage of my first novel, and recently I was faced with a problem regarding how a scene should work. What I had just wasn’t right. I thought about it for several days and then while walking my dog Cody, early one morning, the answer came. It was simple. I think creativity is something that cannot be forced, cannot be “made” to happen. It comes of itself, naturally and always right. I like your quote because it speaks of that marvelous quality of creativity–that it simply happens. It’s a beauty that doesn’t try to be beautiful…it simply is.

    Very nice post, thank you! 🙂

        The beauty of it is that there are no restrictions in the universes we create within ourselves isn’t it? We start with a blank page, every combination of characters leads to a different story. I am sitting here mindblown haha
