What I Learned In Kindergarten

I'm reading this book called Ignore Everybody And 39 Other Keys To Creativity by Hugh MacLeod. Though it's not the most gripping thing I've ever read, he does make some very good points.

 

In tip #7, he states that "everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the 'creative bug' is just a wee voice telling you, "I'd like my crayons back, please."

 

So I guess that's what I'm saying. I want my crayons back.
