In his book OUT OF OUR MINDS: LEARNING TO BE CREATIVE, Sir Ken Robinson writes that creativity "...is applied imagination. To call someone creative suggests they are actively producing something in a deliberate way...a first definition of creativity then is imaginative processes with outcomes in the public world..."
It takes courage to put yourself and your creations into the world. With sharing comes risk--of rejection, of visibility, of success. Whatever your fear, applaud your commitment to creativity. Each creative offering adds energy to the collective desire to make meaning. Each creative offering is a message to others: Be courageous, take the risk, join the dialogue. And welcome!
