The "messy" minds of geniuses and most truly creative people is one of the reasons they probably don't usually do well in traditional schooling where everything is taught in a linear fashion. Let's hear it for all that messiness -- it helps save the world!

Very odd how creative people are sought+adored by some+with others frowned upon...now if you're successful than it's usually not an issue but if not...well it's a sad lonely world too often. Thx Darren

One can't compartmentalize creativity as such as much as science would like. Einstein's Theory of Relativity coming from imagination arising from a ride on a moonbeam.

Rather ironically, people with logical intellectual prowess in the world of mathematics and physics are sought by companies involved in the irrational, random world of the stock and shares market.

Wow!! I just, tonight, finished reading 'I'll Give You The Sun' by Jandy Nelson. I highly recommend it. It's a story of fraternal twins through 3 years of their teenage lives and all the amazing wonders that can happen, may happen, will happen and how those wonders can change your life forever.
The family is an artistic one, not in imagination only. You will connect with these young adults in a remembering way... back to your own childhood and their wonders.

I'd also like to consider myself one of those "creative people". I do have a messy mind!! lol

Thanks Darren :")

Very interesting, Darren. I love the graphic timeline for the creative process. It reminds me of every big research paper I wrote! :-)
