CREATIVITY, THE BEAUTY OF IMPERFECTION BY QUINN DURSEE
Creativity to me, throughout my young adult life where my mind really began to grasp the broader concepts of thinking, has always stood out as a skill that cannot be taught or obtained through discipline and repetition.
I always had figured that the word “creativity” stood as a adjective to describe the greatest of minds or people who bring forth ideas and inventions that had never been thought of before. It was before this class that I had figured creativity was reserved as one of the most brilliant forms of thinking and that I was going to be no more creative than your average joe.
Creativity, in itself, is informal and imperfect. It does not have perfectly sculpted edges and aesthetically pleasing features, which all in all is what makes it so beautiful. It forces me to stray from “coloring in the lines” because creativity is breaking down those barriers in order to open your mind.
