Creativity is not yours.

Creativity is this intangible thing; this ‘presence’ that flows through us, if we allow it. Creativity is not exclusive or private. You do not need a parking permit for creativity; you just need to be ready and waiting with a pen in your hand. Selfishness and competition are the antichrist to creativity; they start, slowly at first, creeping into your creative space. They lure creativity out, pretending to be a friend, to be a helping hand but then before you know it they have stabbed creativity through the heart till all breath has left, till the heartbeat is a distant dull drumbeat of a dream. Creativity & ideas should never be trapped and caged; they should fly free and act as an invisible Mary Poppins, going where they are needed, then moving on swiftly.
