Creative Work Is Play

“Improvisation, composition, writing, painting, theater, invention,
all creative acts are forms of play, the starting place of creativity in the human growth cycle, and one of the great primal life functions…
Technique itself springs from play…
Creative work is play…
In play we manifest fresh, interactive ways of relating with people, animals, things, ideas, images, ourselves…”
~ Stephen Nachmanovitch, Free Play: Improvisation in Life and Art
