What I find absorbing about imagination and creativity are the unlimited ways to frame it, yet at its core is the essence of being human. If you ask me, it’s the meaning of life and just as slippery.
To be creative is to develop intuition, shut down what makes sense and follow the feeling. Feeding the hunger we’ll look, listen, study and practice, but if we try to follow information to a commonsensical conclusion, there are no surprises only boredom.
[via The Woodstock Channel] Bob Dylan talks about how creativity happens, in this case, the writing of “Stardust” by Hoagy Carmichael. Part of David McDonald’s series, “The Mystery of Creativity,” about the connections between creativity and spirituality. Mr. McDonald is also the director of a film called “Woodstock Revisited” which features several Dylan and The Band-related chapters.
