The Creatives - Viewing the World in a Different Way

"Calla, Like Georgia" ©Mary Montague Sikes

The Creatives are a different brand of people. The ones I've known view the world in their own unique ways. They are interesting and amazing folks. They look around them and see things others do not. They are often people who bring vision and change to a community.

I suspect the Creatives throughout history have always been a little different. They "think outside the box" to develop artwork, architecture, writing, and more. They are not your ordinary artists. I have always admired the work of artist Georgia O'Keeffe because she was brave and daring, living mostly in a world of art dominated by men. She looked at a flower and saw more than petals. She lived the life of a Creative.

Who are the Creatives among the writers we know? Perhaps they are the ones who have stood the test of time. Shakespeare? Whitman? Thoreau ?

The Creatives "march to the beat of a different drummer," like the words of Henry David Thoreau. Do you know a Creative?

As a musician, I hear things in music others don't. Not a great, just hear more.

Interesting. I imagine a study could be made that would be very revealing. Thanks for visiting.

I have a knack for seeing the world in black and white. That's why I've always loved B&W photography. I'm drawn to shapes and textures over colors.

Shapes and textures are beautiful tools for art especially in black and white. Thanks for sharing, Diane.
