Do Not Fear Mistakes, Creatively Speaking

announcement/mailer created by Judy and Meredith in 1985 for Sacred and Profane, a chamber chorus

Creatively Speaking

“Do not fear mistakes. There are none.” Says Miles Davis.

Creatively speaking, it’s an interesting concept. He also says,

“Sometimes you gotta play a long time to play like yourself.”

These two quotes fit together, perfectly. Creatively speaking. And that is mostly what we speak here. The language of Creativity. There’s no room for perfection in Creativity. There is magic in the mistakes we make as we push the paint across the page. Far more than an interesting concept, mistakes lead to a beautiful, artful reality. Each misstep or misdirection is as it should be. It is all useful information we can incorporate into the design before us.

Creatively Speaking.
