The Far Side of Creativity

Most of us value creativity, but I wonder how many of us often think about the true implications of it? Sadly real creativity is rarely something that we can call upon at will, and sometimes it can consume us.

This must be one of the finest descriptions of a creative genius: Lord Byron:

“[The mind of Lord Byron] was like a volcano, full of fire and wealth, sometimes calm, often dazzling and playful, but ever threatening. It ran swift as the lightning from one subject to another, and occasionally burst forth in passionate throes of intellect, nearly allied to madness.”

–Lady Marguerite Blessington (Irish-born Writer, 1789-1849)
