Genesis: Creating Something New

By Millicent Sykes

“We can’t all be geniuses,” a co-worker said to me once.

“Why not?” I replied. “A genius is someone who has an idea, a new idea.”

Ok, so you have a new idea.

What do you do with it?

Is it true, kind, necessary? (to quote the great thinkers…)

Okay, criteria met.

Nicely done!

Next step, ready?




Well, buckle in….

Idea, had.

What does your idea mean?

How can people use your idea?

Is your idea important at this point in time?

Can we use your idea? Or is it something you think about compulsively?

What is the function of your idea?

Forget the money…. I know what you are thinking.

Become a TRUE artist for just a moment and forget the system.

Okay…. back to it.

Your idea has function…. can it be applied to this day and age?

Wait.. wait… wait..

Back track..

Do you fully understand your idea?

Wait.. wait.. wait..

Do you understand yourself?

Ahhh… this is the disconnection.

Back to square one.. who are you and what do you want?
