Source of Creativity

In Texas. Another day yesterday, with university leaders and educators.

It’s good to return to Open Space as a format for learning and sparking creativity. And courage. And clarity. It’s great to see it refound.

Or as Steven Pressfield says in a book recently gifted to me (Thx Chris Smyth), The War of Art, “…the source of creativity…is the innate power to discover hidden connection between two things — images, ideas, words — that no one else has seen before, link them, and create for the world a third, utterly unique work.”

Here’s to all of that growing. Aided by simple process formats. Amplified by showing up in the heart of it. Satisfied by finding ways together about things that so many of us care about.

The simple. And the profound and permanent practice of it all.
