Everything in the Universe is made from the crumbs of something else. Surely, this is the first rule of Creativity and Creativity must certainly be the first consideration in defining art.
And for those of us who have lived this Creative Experience, whether it be to suddenly hear the first words in a poem on its way into our reality or becoming aware of a business idea rising to the surface or perhaps caressing a piece of unfettered marble and feeling the sculpture hidden among its veins or Miracle of Miracles, helping to form a new person, whether by fertilizing an egg or stumbling through the agonizing pile of paperwork and interviews to adopt a child, the feeling that accompanies such Creative Endeavors is called Love.
Knowing these things helps me when I feel Broken for in recalling this Truth I look forward to becoming a better Lee.
