“You must get in touch with your creativity” is a statement that doesn’t sit easily with me. The older I get the more I realize it’s the other way around; creativity ardently seeks to get in touch with us. It is always naturally seeking and moving out from within that dark, silent and invisible world of immense possibility, wanting to manifest itself in the visible world. Our task is to simply feel its urge and desire, to greet it with deep appreciation as it appears, and then take it by its hand and lead it in to that unfolding space of visibility. This little shift changed my entire understanding of creativity.
