"Creativity is a central source of meaning in our lives . . . most of the things that are interesting, important, and human are the results of creativity . . . when we are involved in it, we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life."

- Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

I agree. On days that I find boring are those when I don't feel creative.

Creative experiences do seem to make life more fulfilling. I love this quote and your blog is so inspiring. Thank you...

ooh, ooh, I'm going out on a limb here and won't even check my memory on line. Is this author of this quote the author of a book titled, Flow.....? What a wonderful book, one that has stayed with me but the author's name is so unique and difficult for me to remember.
Now I'll go check and I'll be really embarrassed if I'm mistaken. :)
