Jans Journal, The Third Eye

Jan’s Journal: “The Third Eye” Creative Vision

I’ve been laughed at for my definition of the word, “creativity.” They say the way I define it is too broad because it means everything is creative. The word “creative has been so commercialized that its true meaning has been deadened. I am going to use the word “imagination” because it is just a bit too long to have been over used.

I have always believed that the car we drive, the clothes we wear, how we cook and almost everything can be boiled down to that moment when the idea of such was imagined.
