Creative People

Have you ever noticed that creative people seem to be happiest with a mess around them? That’s not quite accurate. They live in a perpetual cycle: they create a mess, then they straighten it out. But they don’t live “straight” very long. Something makes them throw the papers around, toss the clothes on the nearest chair, leave all the doors open. They need to create the mess in order to create order. Maybe it’s what Friedrich Nietzsche meant when he said, “One must have chaos in one, to give birth to a dancing star.” The mess finally results in a published book, a produced film, a concert, a painting, a photograph, a great performance. The ultimate organization is accomplishment.
