Amy Tan How do we create?

Amazing, engaging, powerful, funny, creative. Taking about all the different sources of creativity. Seizures, psychosis, past lives, angst, sacrifice, thinking about death, childhood experiences, family and cultural influences. Makes me think about how our designers are constantly under deadlines to deliver "great creative". In fact the more we hear from these incredible minds, the more I think about how my efforts may be misdirected in the bigger picture. She talks about how the universe gives us clues and we often don't see them. There are never complete answers, rather, if there is one, remind oneself that there is uncertainty. If there is an answer it is to imagine.....Imagination is the closest thing to compassion. become the story
