I would describe myself as someone with a creative bent. But thinking about it more, I am not sure that I am that creative at all.
I can play music, but not compose. I can knit, but need a pattern. I cannot create something from nothing. This hit me while I was looking at some art, and realized, I would NOT even know where to begin. How do you take a picture in your mind and put it on paper? Even a true artist views colors differently than I do. Without a sheet of music in front of me, anything that I play would sound terrible. I am really not creative at all. I do, on the other hand, very much enjoy things that others have created and the appreciation of the fact that I could never do these things make what someone else creates all the more beautiful to me.
