fawlty creativity

“If you want creative workers, give them enough time to play.”
John Cleese

As the week draws to a close this quote from one of my favourite comedians reminds me how fortunate I am in my current situation – I am being trusted to ‘play’ in order to create. Along with this permission to ‘play’ I also believe that complicit with that comes a permission to, or an understanding that things may, fail. There is an acknowledgment that some of what I try may not immediately, or ever, work.

It’s a privilege being based at the cathedral for which I am thankful and I pray that this permission and space to play becomes infectious in the diocese.

  1. For what my humble opinion is worth, I think that your charismatic approach certainly seems to touch most people I have seen with you in a positive way Rob …Its certainly that way with us receiving the positivity that all of you chaps there seem to exude.
