Note: To (the Misunderstood)

The Note Issue Three Image


While preparing stories for this issue, I looked up the term creativity.

Creativity — the use of the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work.

The word I connect within this definition is the use of.

I learned a while back that audacity, not talent, makes one person an artist. And another a shadow artist — hiding in the shadows, afraid to step out. And expose the dream to the light, fearful it will disintegrate to the touch.

Creativity to me is the will to step out into the light.
