Creativity in Darkness

Hello world!

I’m back, sorry it’s been a while.  I’ve been busy though, beavering away on books and blogs (other’s sadly) and business.  However, I am back on the grid.  Stay tuned for some exciting new things I’m plunging into (feet first, of course).

I’ve been thinking a lot about creativity lately – where it comes from, how it happens, what happens when creativity is stifled, squashed or hidden underneath that heavy rock called ‘job’. I’ve got creativity on the brain, thanks to Maria over at Brain Pickings and Clare at The Creative Arts House.

An except from John Cleese’s 1991 lecture on creativity Maria’s post*, which got me thinking (and guest blogging) about types of creativity and thought space. You can read my ruminations over at The CAH blog, once they are published.

Other than that, the only news is that tonight, I type this post from my new office (from this day forward known as The Blue Room, for no other reason than the robin’s egg blue paint on its walls).  I am typing in the dark, as The Blue Room lacks any illumination, save the glow from my iMac. With that, here is my thought for this evening:

You can create through the darkness; you just need to find the right source of light.


*Maria – I do hope I have used the Curator’s Code correctly.  Let me know if I haven’t and I will correct quick smart!

    That’s right – sometimes the best creative works are formed through the darkness.
