Creativity is piercing the mundane to find the marvelous. ~~Bill Moyers
I usually plan things out very carefully when I'm creating a new piece of writing. And, since I am new at trying my hand at art, I take great pains at the preliminaries when I start a new piece. In other words, I always have a plan.
When I saw this quote, it hit home. I hope to someday be able to pierce the mundane to find the marvelous, but I realize I'll need to loosen my grip on my plan in order to let that happen.
