Creativity is making something new. So no matter how many mistakes we have made, no matter how many time we have failed, we can always create something new.
And creativity contains its own anaesthetic, its own intoxicant, its own ecstasy - in flow.
Creativity forgives the past in a burst of ecstasy and creates a new world.
Creativity frees us from abuse. And creativity frees us from rigidity.
Creativity enables us to breathe freely.
Of course the abusive and the rigid try to nobble the creative flow. They try to strangle us.
And sometimes they succeed. And as we lose our breath, we start to see world through their eyes and all of a sudden the world turns grey.
But at the bottom of it all is the deep down freshness of things. A bubbling spring - and all we have to do is drink to be refreshed.
