Another Year of Coloring Outside the Lines—Successfully
I Like Holes with Cheese Around It
I feel blessed and lucky that all of the offspring of my brothers are extremely creative in both their thinking and their art. As I said in the welcome section , creativity is something we are not born with but it is produced and nurtured both by the people and places in our lives and the experiences we have. All of us are capable of being creative and children typically have this capability with greater ease, especially if the nourishment for it is there.
When thinking about coloring outside the lines and what I wanted my feature in the Kids in the Kitchen section to be about, I immediately thought of one of the most creative and genius statements I had ever heard coming from anyone. My niece Svea is exceptionally creative, I often see bits of me in her, her anger, her manipulations, her mean streak, but I also see the way her mind wraps around things in the most genius way. I can see how she maneuvers through the world with quick and creative forethought and how she tries to make things happen with that thought process. She is a girl who needs to be moving and active and creative at all times and I love that about her. She is a creative force that I am inspired from and learn from daily. I continue to strive to do good things for myself in life but also as I have said before, being a good example for my nieces and nephews is a duty I take very seriously. I cannot imagine what it is like to have a child of my own, as the amount of responsibility and love I feel for the ones that are not mine is unbelievable. This little Svea one of the many creative children in my life can color outside the lines like it is no bodies business.
One day apparently Svea who was eating a slice of Swiss cheese told her mother: “I love holes with cheese around it” This statement continues to amaze me with the sheer creativity and genius. A way of looking at things that is new and fresh, pure creative thought. This statement inspires me time and time again and I will never forget it or what that says about her amazing viewpoint.
