Daily Inspiration: Hugh Macleod’s Childhood Crayons

"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.'"

Hugh Macleod is a cartoonist and author, and has built a career out of drawing, discussing and sharing the best ways that creative people work. From his blog, this quote suggests that we’re all born with creative impulses, and they aren’t reserved for a small percentile of the population that has an exclusive creative gene. Did you have a moment you realised you wanted your crayons back, and had always been attracted to your creative pursuits?
