The noun of self becomes a verb. This flashpoint of creation in the present moment is where work and play merge.
The most potent muse of all is our own inner child.
Creative work is play. It is free speculation using the materials of one's chosen form.
Creativity can replace conformity as the primary mode of social being. We can cling to that which is passing, or has already passed, or we can remain accessible to - even surrender to - the creative process, without insisting that we know in advance the ultimate outcome for us, our institutions, or our planet. To accept this challenge is to cherish freedom, to embrace life, and to find meaning.
