What inspires creativity?

Went last night to Blueman Group here in Las Vegas. Here's a show with three pretty odd looking guys who simply stand and look and dance and drum there way through 90 minutes of high energy creativity. Not a word was spoken, though many are used in the multimedia experience surrounding the stage. But there isn't a moment that could in any respect be called boring ...

It left me wondering ... What inspires this level of creativity. I mean, who sat down and thought, Hey! I know, we'll take three guys, paint their heads blue and have them drum on paint filled drums so the colors spray up in the air?

It's so much fun to sit and breath is in. To understand that there are people who have creative vision and who develop their talents to a level we mere mortals can't possibly hope to attain. I see it in some of my new customers photography. I read it in great books. I see it in paintings and in dance.

There are people who walk by these things and see them an never notice. Even people who sometimes come and sit and watch, and even exposed directly, are simply blinded by indifference. That's sad. Whether good or bad, art touches our soul when we let it and reminds us of the vibrance of life.
