The Nature of Creativity

I paid $20 to watch a live interview of John Cleese by Judd Apatow on the subject of creativity, for a book Cleese is “touring” to support. It was fantastic and fascinating, and is still available, albeit recorded now. For me, the memorable exchange was about a muse/being in the zone. They agreed there was a universal reservoir of creativity, and that people such as Bob Dylan figured out how to attach a fire hose to it. At first, I thought perhaps I had attached a garden hose. On candid second though, I think I am using an eyedropper. But at least I get to be in the room next to the reservoir, a room Cleese says we can all enter.
