Creativity


Each night, a friend and I examine our day, and ask ourselves what we did that was creative.  We have come to see that we don't need to paint or write a poem, that some days creativity erupts in how we interact with another person, or a stone, or a tree.  Sometimes we are creative when we change how we think about something.

I love this definition of creativity by the marvelous Bill Moyers.  

"Creativity is piercing the mundane to find the marvelous.”
