While listening to a musician describe how he writes music, I get this wave of creative hunger. I want to create something too! This is the same feeling I get as I wander around my classroom when teaching. I crave the feel of the fabric and a sharp pair of scissors in my hands.
Not that being around all these creative students is bad. My theory is that everyone is creative. And if you encourage someone enough, they will feel that creative hunger too. Think of it as a hunger pain that actually benefits you!
