Creativity is more than just being different.
Anybody can play weird – that’s easy.
What’s hard is to be as simple as Bach.
Making the simple complicated is commonplace – making the complicated simple,
awesomely simple – that’s creativity.

– Charles Mingus

If I was asked to get rid of the Zen aesthetic
and just keep one quality necessary to create art,
I would say its trust.

When you learn to trust yourself implicitly,
you no longer need to improve something through your art.
You simply allow it to come out, to be effortless.
It happens just as you grow your hair.
It grows.

– John Daido Loori
