I have a profound desire to give myself over to the act of creation, making something where nothing existed before. I play guitar. I paint. I write. I interpret a set of circumstances in four dimensions so that I can leverage it's future. I do these things not for the things created themselves - the songs, the paintings, the story or the rewards that come from the succesful management of some business function - but for the process of creation and the joy it gives me. I do judge and value the outcome of the activity by my own standards... but not above the doing.
Why is that?
