Creativity. What is it?



Q: What is creativity?  

A: The relationship between a human being and the mysteries of inspiration. 

I read this quote today.  It stands alone at the front of a book called Big Magic.  Written by Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic explores our relationship with creativity.  Something I find fascinating.

Back in 2007 I started writing blog posts for my All Things Creative.  It gave me pleasure then (and still does) to look for creativity in all aspects of my life.  All Things Creative became the perfect platform for me to focus on the joys of looking at life creatively.  I haven’t been good at keeping up regular posts, but I HAVE been good at allowing my creativity to come and go.

Today I find I’m embarking on a new journey of creativity.  Reading Big Magic has inspired me a hundred fold.  How my new journey will unfold I’ve yet to discover.  However, with 10 years of freelance web content writing under my belt and affirmation from Elizabeth Gilbert that we all have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within all of us, I aim to progress my ‘writing’ and ‘creativity’ journey in ever-expanding ways.

I come back to my faithful branding tree.

I remain rooted in my ‘writing’ and I’m branching out in ‘creativity’.  Put simply, Creative Writing.  And Elizabeth Gilbert reminds me that it’s never too late to begin your creative endeavours.

Here are three things I LOVE about creativity:

  • You are never too old to be creative
  • If you’re alive, you’re a creative person
  • Creativity is always within us, even if you have lost sight of it for a while

I feel quite strongly that there must come a point when a close advisory referendum 3 years ago based on undeliverable lies, illegality+ electoral malpractice, can no longer justify the economic political+ social mayhem being caused. Why is no one saying this? #StopBrexit

The UK has eradicated many orchards in recent decades, and now imports 70% of its apples. Planting more apple trees would cut food miles, soak up CO2, help wildlife, cheer up our landscapes, and allow us to enjoy and save traditional or rare apple varieties. Let's get planting 🍎

The backstop is an insurance to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland unless and until an alternative is found. Those against the backstop and not proposing realistic alternatives in fact support reestablishing a border. Even if they do not admit it.
