Twenty Seventeen is dancing away. And Twenty Eighteen is tiptoeing in across the globe. A ballet of sounds, fireworks, and celebrations around the globe. We hope you have all enjoyed the last eve of the old year and are ready for a creative journey in the new one with us.
As we mentioned last week, we have a full packed year of creativity ahead of us. 52 words we will be exploring. Fifty-two values and emotions. And our random generator kicked Creativity as the first word of 2018.
Creativity, a noun that according to Google translates into the use of imagination or original ideas to create something.
Inventiveness, Imagination, Originality are seen as synonyms.
Wikipedia’s definition is slightly more elaborate and defines our first word of the year as a phenomenon whereby something new and somehow valuable is formed. The created item may be intangible (such as an idea, a scientific theory, a musical composition, or a joke) or a physical object (such as an invention, a literary work, or a toy photograph).
So, whatever definition we take, creativity or the art of creating images from simple plastic toys is something we have in abundance here in our community.
First of all, if you play along with us in our #SiPgoes52 challenge, we challenge you to step out of your boundaries.
Try something new.
A new idea.
Some different angle.
Something that stretches your imagination. And tag it with #sipgoes52 and #sip_creativity and let us know in the comments below how it went.
Above all, a happy and creative Twenty Eighteen.
From all of us to you and your family and friends.
