Something hit me on this rainy, flood y day. the thought about creativity and talent hit me, and whether there’s a difference. So I wanted to touch on it, and in all honesty, I feel like there is a difference between being a creative artist, and a talented one. Being creative is a means of expressing ones gifts universally, and unlimited. Where you have one who is talented by, but also stands in limitation. And what I mean by limit is; the only recognition given is by someone else seeing and acknowledging whether you have some type of extra skills over someone else s.
But in all reality; everyone has some type of gift of creativity that is universal and beyond the limiting of those who would feel that they have the power to say whether the creativeness of someone else is good enough or naught. Creativeness comes from above, and talent comes from below. It really just depends on how you are able to look at it, but if you are able to see; then you will be able to see that, but creativeness tends to stand beyond what it means to be talented. The power given when looked at to be talented can also be taken and stripped away. As a creative artist, the only taking is what you allow to be taken.
If I used self as an example, this is what my thoughts would be: “I may naught in the eyes of those who feel that they have the power to see a worthiness in me, to be acknowledged as possessing a certain talent worthy of recognition in the eyes of those who hold the power to help. But, as a creative artist, I control the flow, and operation to how my work will be seen and critiqued by the eyes and ears of those who seize the moment, and opportunity to experience by choice in engagement”
Below is the song video “Man of Steel” (God’s 4lo). A song what one could see as an example of what it means to be a creative artist rather than be seen as a talented artist. There is no limiting my ability to be, and show to have a flow, and vision of creativeness that, I feel is important to me, and why regardless to whether talent is seen in my work or naught, it don’t stop my continuing flow of creativeness.
MAN OF STEEL
To me, it appears to be a favoritism game being played when it comes to talent, but as a creative artist you might be bothered a little by it, but when you know what I know you tend to take the good with the bad and allow that in itself to fuel ones ambitions even more to work harder towards being even more of stand up, and out as an artist who creates. Creating is an operation, like science and the flow possession of uniqueness beyond entertainment.
Me personally, I stand for the creative minds of artist who struggle to get their work to be recognized by those who could possibly help that creative artist’s work elevate by endorsement, support and guidance to how one can make a living off of doing what they love doing, which is their creative artwork. Anyway, I just wanted to touch on this because it crossed my mind today. Long live the creative artist.
