“If there is one word that makes creative people different from others, it is the word complexity. Instead of being an individual, they are a multitude.

Like the color white that includes all colors, they tend to bring together the entire range of human possibilities within themselves. Creativity allows for paradox, light, shadow, inconsistency, even chaos –and creative people experience both extremes with equal intensity.”

-Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, creativity researcher

      That quote really struck me. I’ve wondered for so long why it was always back and forth – intense on one side, intense on the other. I don’t know – are non-creative people just as complex? I couldn’t say – I’ve been stuck in me for a while in all the eddies.
