Unless you’re an artist, you won’t appreciate how little respect we have for creative people.

“We don’t grow into creativity, we grow out of it.
Or rather, we get educated out of it. Schools kill creativity.”

Ken Robinson

There are two ways to live: grow or don’t grow. If you don’t grow, then things don’t change and you’re surrounded by the same situations. This sounds boring, but it’s what must of us aspire to: the good life, comfortable and secure.

If you grow, then you either have to find a path or make one. We ask, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” referring to a roster of prefabricated identities. It’s only half a joke because we’re all a little nervous about our future.
