I remember vividly a conversation that I had with my son Ezra. “Dad” he said, “When I grow up, I want to be a doctor first, a fire-fighter second, and a professional basketball player third.” At first I was very concerned about his priorities. I mean professional basketball player third! Have I taught you nothing!!:) But in all seriousness, I have always loved and been inspired by his creativity, positive spirit, and ability to dream big. No doubt that some of that inspiration went into this song.
Sir Ken Robinson defines creativity as “the process of having original ideas that have value.” How do we cultivate more of this in our world? How can our being in the world produce this kind of creativity? We need it. The world needs it. Be you.
