"Creativity requires you believe and trust it exists in everyone, especially yourself. You may feel creativity is an elusive butterfly and that everyone has a net but you. However, creativity is more than an elusive butterfly. Creativity is the caterpillar of change. Creativity is the slow, methodical caterpillar that has to cross the street. With luck it won’t be squashed by a Mack truck of a negative remark and will instead be able to climb a mammoth tree and in time, will take gorgeous flight." - Carol Ikard
