On the makings of a creative path

Our way forward is not found by retracing our old paths.

As so many wise people have observed before us, we cannot solve our current issues with the thinking that brought us here.

So, I want to pause and spend time with Rick Rubin’s words to start the week.

The ability to look deeply
is the root of creativity.
To see past the ordinary and mundane
and get to what might otherwise be invisible.

+ Rick Rubin, from The Creative Act: a Way of Being, 2023

I don’t think he means to disparage the everyday, but instead, have the courage to go beyond the surface.

Pause. See differently. Re-story 🌿
