The creative process certainly isn’t a tidy one.  Paper mache is one example, but any kind of creativity takes a willingness to get your hands dirty, take risks, make mistakes and clean up your mess as you go along.

Discarded first drafts, blurry photos, rewritten code, heartfelt apologies, soil-covered hands, dirty diapers, milk-stained shirts.

The ephemera of creativity.
