Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty, they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the ‘creative bug’ is just a wee voice telling you, “I’d like my crayons back, please.”

    Loved it…and I still have a box of Crayons! by golly. But I don’t expect you’re surprised at that.

    It is sad that when kids need creativity the most they’re set in chairs and told to hold still. Great words
