So why is creativity so important for our world?
We are creative beings – when we communicate we formulate sentences and capture new ideas. Our individuality is wrapped up in our ability to be creative.
Where is magic still found in this world? In beauty, in love, in the spark of an ah-ha! Curiously, just like reading requires creativity/imagination, so does viewing art or actively listening to music, or viewing a play etc.
The audience is required to put the world together in new ways. Such gymnastics is what keeps up alive – keeps us young – keeps us nimble enough to change with the changes that necessarily come in life.
