“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.”
Making creative connections is the way of life in our house. One event blurs into another leaving items and decorations remaining out and in view, where, in a more organized household, they would have been put away long ago. I like to think of our way of living as being one of “organized chaos.” It’s a messy way to live, but oh, the ideas we come up with.
I know that having this kind of a cluttered lifestyle drives some people insane. They can’t stand the messiness of it all and they can’t stand not being in control of everything about where they live. As for me, I see it as an opportunity for creativity. New combinations previously overlooked are formed from within our gathered piles. It’s kind of like living inside of a life-sized “I Spy” puzzle – the combinations of discovered items are simply endless.
See those Easter chicks? They were the perfect size to fit into this year’s nativity scene.
Finally, we had our chickens represented at the manger.
See you next week.
As always, happy weekend everyone, health and happiness (and safety) to your flock.
