“Creativity, in contrast, is driven more by inner choice than by outer demand. An act cannot be creative if it is not born of freedom.”
– Parker Palmer, The Active Life
The creative process is fueled by freedom, and freedom implies the ability to act on our creative instincts. The creative process is not frivolous, nor is it necessarily efficient. But creative thought without action is of questionable value. It’s by putting our thoughts and instincts into tangible form that we discover their true meaning.
