Creativity comes from within, but inspiration to be creative is provided by events and people surrounding us every day. The trick, I think, is to welcome inspiration whenever possible, but act upon it with patience and clarity. Too often, we rush to complete something instead of making sure it is done to the best of our abilities and imagination. I struggle with creativity, but every now and again I get a hint of how powerful it can be in my life. I saw that studio space and its perfectly positioned door. I saw the windows that could tell us that it was night. I saw a space for an illuminated dancer. The vision was in my head long before I pressed the shutter. For a moment, I was creative and it felt wonderful. Be creative in everything you do. Creativity can change your life or your world.
