ahhh, to be a kid again.

you want to know what creativity is? give a kid a stick and watch 'em play for hours.
it's a sword. now a spaceship. now an instrument of timid exploration poking and prodding all things slimey, spindly, sticky and silky.
a brush to sign a name in the dirt.
or the sky.

and then we get structured.

structure. an angelic and evil word that one.

structure is safe. and that's a good thing... most of the time. but sometimes i like parameters.... lines in the sand.... for a completely different and opposite reason... creativity. because there are times i need to rail against what's expected and that means a target to aim at. because you can't cross a line that isn't drawn.
