Hegarty on Creativity

        Creativity isn’t an occupation.
            It’s a preoccupation.

    It invents, perfects and
                defines our world.
            It explains and entertains us.

                    But what drives creativity?
                    Inspires it? Sustains it?
    We’re all creative.
        But only some of us will be lucky
        enough to earn our living by it.

            Interested in being one
                of the lucky few?
