Use it or lose it. That's one of my Mother's favorite sayings, and it applies to creativity as well. Much more meaningful to me right now is what Twyla Tharp says: "Creativity is an act of defiance. You're challenging the status quo. You're questioning accepted truths and principles. You're asking three universal questions that mock conventional wisdom:
Why do I have to obey the rules?
Why can't I be different?
Why can't I do it my way?
These are the impulses that guide all creative people whether they admit it or not. " Well said Twyla. I admit it.
