Do you think there’s really such a thing as the “creative type”?
Big M (7 years old) loves to build. He builds with Legos, blocks or wood. I love to watch him create because everything he builds has a story. While the end product is often very cool, his process is amazing.
Little M (5 years old) is more of a performer. She sings, dances and tells fantastic stories. The other day she was singing in the bathroom for 20 minutes. I wanted so badly to open the door and see the expression on her face while she belted out the words, but I knew disturbing her would only cut into her process. (So I listened outside the door.)
I know you believe that creativity is valuable for adults as well as children. What is your favorite creative outlet?
Hmmm. That is a tough one. I love creating in almost any form but I think cake decorating is my favorite. Wait, maybe writing. Of course I am singing all day long. I guess it just depends on what mood I’m in. 🙂

Can’t wait to read the book. We all grew up in a culture which assumed that there are only a few creative people. Creativity has become more of a requirement for life than…well most things… and is required for success in all disciplines. We need to change our mindsets and our schools and follow your lead. Congratualtions.
