& when you see something completely beautiful,
something that takes your breath away,
you know someone's vision, in their own minds, has made it possible,
they wouldn't accept anything less than what they envisioned.
no matter how difficult to actually design & build, they remained determined.
when I saw the image below, at first I thought it was a painting, looking closer I knew it wasn't.
imagine actually building this.
or the person who conceived this incredible installation art,
hanging Chinese lanterns at the Montreal Botanical Gardens,
beautiful & perfect little tree house,
oh yes, we must know that someone determined to complete it with
perfection was harassed by their own creativity until it was complete.
or the art director who styled this photo shoot,
featuring bedding, actually had to build this platform in toto
and then had to wait for the perfect moment, when the mist & fog
made their entrance, to actually photograph his creation.
an old boat, ruined by time, imagined as a sitting area in a garden...
then digitally made it the colors of the story they were telling.
or this, a few years ago this would have been thought impossible,
but a gymnast, dancer, someone, envisioned how dramatic it could be,
and worked 100's of hours to make it happen.
WHAT IS CREATIVITY ANYWAY?
An Article by Jan Phillips for the Huffington Post, 2010
I love this philosophy. I know every endeavor is creativeness.
Think about medicine, advertising, business development, system integration,
hardware, software, setting a table, gardening, teaching school, etc.
(maybe not politics or lawyering)
Everything begins as an idea.
Tell me, what do you think about this?
The precious little sign

posted from the hill country of Texas where one has
time to think...
