Creativity and Play

No surprise but I’ve been thinking a lot about my priorities lately.   As I’ve mentioned several times on this blog, one that I keep coming back to is a longing to be more creative in my daily life, to feel freer to explore ideas and to have fun.

I think creativity and fun are not just enjoyable but essential.  And often revolutionary as well, engaging in play upends our expectations, challenges the status quo and helps us to see the world in new ways.

I am writing about this in other venues and will share some of it here, but in the meantime, can I recommend some fabulous TED talks?  This playlist has so many hilarious and inspiring ideas.   I especially like the first two videos.  I totally want to figure out how to make a fruit instrument and I’m tempted to not wear any pants to my next faculty meeting too…
