The world is like a huge ongoing sound. Some originally saw this as the voice of god. Physicists consider it to be a field of information. Our ancestors even had no word for creativity.

What about things that motivate us from inside? The things that motivate us from the inside, they sometimes whisper, sometimes roar. Why are they so variable? Depends on what is talking I guess. I myself experience something that is metaphorically… Seek More
I find since I hit my head I am not very creative. My pictures lack something. I can not role play well any more. I just hit a wall. I panic for I do remember how I was before, so… Seek More
This other way I mentioned… Behind everything you seek to create there is a process, a way of implementation and agency. You can’t paint without the brushes, but you pay little mind to the brushes while painting. Many attribute this… Seek More
So shall I offer how my allies help me create? First they flag things for me. Anger is a very enthusiastic hunter. Doubt is much more quiet. Fear is always reminding me of what I have already seen. These are… Seek More
