I am a self employed single Mom of 4, known for flying by the seat of my pants. That is: Deciding a course of action as I go along, using my own initiative and perceptions rather than a predetermined plan or mechanical aids. It works for me. And what an adventurous life I get to live.
Creativity has been attributed variously to divine intervention, cognitive processes, social environment, chance, accident, or serendipity. It has been associated with genius, mental illness and humour. Some say it is a trait we are born with; others say it can be taught with the application of a few simple techniques.
For me, creativity is the way I survive. I rarely want for anything and if I do, I get creative.
