Shape of Creativity

creative perspectivesImagine that your creativity is an entity of its own. What does it look like? Does it have a shape? What color is it? Does it move or is it static? Does it have a name? Where does it reside—in you, near you, somewhere apart?

My creativity is a sphere that’s slightly fuzzy on the edges. The blur is from scattered particles outside the denser main body of speckles that are all single creative ideas. I see it as the photo of a distant elliptical galaxy.

My creative sphere changes sizes. Sometimes it’s small and dark, like a red dwarf star or a galaxy on the edge of being engulfed by a black hole. Other times it expands, loosening the bonds between the individual points that comprise it, and changes color to a bright creamy white.

Regardless of size and color, my creativity hovers in front of me at eye level but pans left and right randomly. It doesn’t have a name. It’s quite a stellar image, isn’t it?

mine is orange, but I don’t really know how to explain the shape. Maybe two plastic molded benches, perhaps designed by playskool stacked seat to seat on top of each other. by the way, what do you call the seat part of a bench?

Giraffe shaped today, cosmos shaped tomorrow. It changes for sure, but there is always a hint of green in it.
