What if creativity is contagious? What if inviting you to be creative with me were to cause you to be creative all on your own? Could I create a chain reaction?
These are some of the questions creeping through my head as I sit contemplating the connections in my life. But a more important question floats up from the realm of my heart. Do the creative ones in my life know the inspiration their self-expression brings to me?
Then, a flash of genius. Why not dedicate one entry a month to the creative ones I come in contact with? The world is filled with people making this thing or that, constructing life in meaningful ways, mustering the courage to look at something from a perspective no one else has dared, or simply falling into a place where the old no longer works and a new way is birthed. This space will be for them. And for me. It will be a sort of matrix, using creativity to spawn more creativity. Why? Because I believe the answer to the question is YES. Creativity is contagious.
How has someone else’s creativity inspired you to fire up your own?
