Claim: Creativity is fueled in relationship

There is a lot in that one Claim. What is creativity, it is not argued if a good or bad thing, it suggests it needs inspiration, fuel, fire, a spark to ignite and sustain it, the source of energy, relationship. Could it be that creativity seeks an expression of beauty and passion? ok, could it be that our lives are beauty and passion and the artist seeks to express us, reflect our lives, or accommodate our lives and in doing so reveals who we are at our core? when we are swept up in an enigma, lets call it a riddle, something that at first doesn't make sense, we try to understand it logically, but did it spark something in you because it it is so elusive? perhaps it appeals to your senses, makes your body tingle, your head wander and imagine, you begin to let go and allow it to have power over you. you become part of the art, you join it and it is fueled and grows bigger. Yes, you commit, no longer being tossed by the wind, but embrace a chosen manifestation of beauty and passion and allow it and only it to reveal its secrets, to cease being a mystery or to be caught up and part of a mystery because you fear of missing out, to lose its spark it gives you, even the intense eagerness or enthusiasm, the passion it gives you in life. yes, it does have power to seduce and we all are powerful creators and those in our lives putty in our hands. it causes the creator to pause and think carefully about the words, the colors, the materials, the organization and relationships of their work, for it will have consequences. as Thoreau said, "it is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look. To affect the quality of the day--that is the highest of arts." so we affect the quality of the day, not just for ourselves, but for and in relationship with others. n
