I think we all are creative in our own way, the question is do we inhibit our own creativity?
I am fearless in exposing my creativity and I think that is the big deal as many are afraid. The fear of rejection is a fierce instinct and surely is key to remaining socially acceptable. Many creative people face the stigma of implied mental dysfunction, or in polite circles eccentricity. Of course some of us, like me, have earned the moniker of “A Nut” yet we press on.
Artistic creativity is not the only type of “Nuthood”. Plenty of inventers face this social stigma until they are considered a success and many other innovators are “Nutty” until they are proven valid. Fortunately brave folks risk swimming across the torrid river of rejection and possible ridicule in hopes of making to the other side to the land of “Na-Na, I was not nuts after all” and it’s fields of validity with corroboratively nodding heads in the balmy breeze. What a scene of reprisal for the “Nay-Nay Ninnies”. Nothing like success to quiet the “Naysayers”.
