I often think about creativity, about being creative, about leading a creative life.


What does it mean to be creative and embrace a creative life?


It doesn’t necessarily mean being a musician, artist, dancer, woodworker, poet, actor, interior designer, photographer, hair stylist or fashion designer.


Rather, I think it has something to do with being curious in whatever line of work you pursue. 


Being curious, asking questions, mulling over options and not being satisfied with the status quo are ways to expand one’s mind frame, of looking beyond the limiting confines of others' expectations and accomplishing what you need to accomplish with a breath of fresh air.


That’s the kind of life I want to lead. And in your heart of hearts, I think that’s the kind of life you want to lead: being the creative office worker, the creative parent, the creative laborer, the creative teacher, the creative food server, the creative spouse, the creative friend.
