The Words of Our Elders: Denise Shekerjian

To our eyes, these striking moments of creativity stand as magnificent monuments that appear so suddenly and with such impact, we assume a genius has been at work. The appeal of such an assumption is strong. It’s far nicer to think in terms of a mighty hand stretching down from the heavens sowing genius in the land than it is to believe in the kind of tedious plodding that goes into the cultivation of a creative idea. It’s far preferable to believe in thunderbolts than it is to have to face up to mundane, trivial workaday world. It might come as a disappointment, then, to realize that behind any creative piece of work is a lot earthbound effort.

The words of our elders, are words of wisdom.
