If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you value creativity. How do I know? It may be a big world out there, but Vagabond English is a tiny community. Maybe, you and I have had the chance to ‘meet’ for a chat--about your reading, your writing, your quest for something a little different.
That’s how I know you’ll understand when I tell you that often--too often--I can’t help but think that the biggest problems we face today boil down to a crisis of creativity.
Think about it. When faced with today’s challenges, how many times do we see the same fearful reactions, watch our societies reach for thoughtless solutions or frame problems without even pausing to understand them fully?
If you watch the news once in a while, I bet you can think of some examples. If you’ve stopped watching--well, it may be because of what I’ve just mentioned.
All of this makes me wonder--is watching and reacting enough?
Maybe it’s time to ask ourselves that small question that is the beginning of any creative endeavor: ‘what if?’
