Thanks to Evelyn for sharing this in her recent Crossroads Dispatches blog:
“Creative people don’t follow the crowds; they seek out the blank spots on the map. Creative people wander through faraway and forgotten traditions and then integrate marginal perspectives back to the mainstream. Instead of being fastest around the tracks everybody knows, creative people move adaptively through wildernesses nobody knows.” – “The Creative Monopoly,” New York Times, April 23, 2012
I’ll be sharing more musings from the Narrow Path in the coming weeks and months, since if we’re not propping up the toxic status quo, we’re on the Narrow Path.
Lots of love,
Note: I’m testing out a potential new home for my Sophia’s Children blog here at WordPress. In the meanwhile, you’ll find the rich archive of Sophia’s Children posts at its long-running Typepad home.
