Is it really easy to be creative? Go go! Create something or copy?
OK, What is creativity?
For me, creativity is capturing a moment! You realize that something is special! Something which others didn't realize and you put it down! Something makes you feel better, excited, unique, amazing...
OK, Who is creative?
I think that we are all creative in some ways! Not necessarily artistic...
If you ask me what is my creativity, I'll say that it is in art.
Can I learn to be creative?
I think creativity can't be forced! it's about the moment! It's coming from inside. Normally when I talk to people about my creative ideas or dreams, after a while I lose them! I don't feel they are special anymore! But after I create what I think or see in my dreams, I feel better and then I show it to people! and people find it creative and different! Mostly!
Sometimes, I feel that creativity can be learned, sometimes I say NO NO! It can only be developed!
It can be encouraged! but It can't be taught! You can be definitely inspired by other people's works!
but copying is not creativity! Not at all! there are a lot of people who only copy! Don't ever copy!
Who is the most creative painter?
Of course, Van Gogh! His style is unique! He always listened to his heart!
How many times every day I have to tell people I am Turkish!
It has been really long time I have been
living here. Whenever I meet people, I say that I’m from Turkey - I’m Turkish!
It’s not because of I’m nationalist. It’s because I’m asked where I’m from
everyday! It's because I have to say where I'm from!
I have been thinking of it! It's hard to say how many times I say that but I can tell it is a lot! When I work at Walters Art Museum! When I meet people who are friends of friends!
The funny thing is before I say where I'm from, people always think I’m
from Mexico or Spain! They say I look
like Spanish of Hispanic! I don’t remember how many times people started
speaking Spanish with me! It’s really cool. I have learned many Spanish words! Hola... Cómo estás?...Buenos
Let me tell you something I don’t complain about it at all. Because the best
friends I have had are Mexicans and Spanish people. There are Russians as well. All Russians I
have met are great people! I don't even have to tell about Turks, do I?
Last week for the first time someone asked me
if I was from Iran at the Walters Art Museum while I worked! That was the
closest guess ever since I have come to the USA!
Anyway, being a Turkish in the USA is fun! People love Turkey for some reasons hehehe :) :)
Aw man! Turkish food is delicious! I'm missing it a lot! Gladly there is a Turkish restaurant two blocks away from us. It's Cazbar! It's in Mount Vernon in Baltimore. It's the best! If you haven't tried Turkish food before, just go there! Enjoy the food!
