Making Lightning – The Creative Spark in All of Us

The sky went from sunset blue to thick blackness that the windshield wipers swiped at with futility. The rain pounded the the car and an uneasy, queasy feeling filled the air as a tornado warning was issued.

It’s in you!
That same power.
You’ve experienced those shocks that startle when you touch a doorknob on a dry day.
This is bigger and can change the world.
Lightning bridges gaps – tremendous expanses of space. It’s possible because of the difference in charge, a difference in potential. Lightning finds its way.
But you need to provide the stuff for creativity to happen.
Observe, read, smell, taste, listen, touch, dream! Understand the challenges you want to solve and then look at them from a different perspective, and then another, and then another!
Allow those differing perspectives to mix together and the clouds will rumble, the sky will flash, creativity will happen.
It’s in you.
