Here’s another Un-Seeing Exercise. It’s a well-worn cliché. We have all been told (and told ourselves and told each other) that we need to find our balance between life and work. [Cue the chorus of moans and groans, guys.]
All the wise guys say it: Creativity is a human birthright. As long as you’re human, they say, you have the capacity to “consciously relate and participate in the world” and, out of that, you make stuff that affects the world and everything and everyone around you. Even the guys in lab coats agree. The main thing that distinguishes us humans from the other critters wandering around on the planet is our jones for seeing and solving problems.
