Nice thoughts, Richard and Glenn. Maybe all individuals carry within seeds of "new" just by the simple fact that they are each a singular and unrepeatable consciousness. However that "newness" is part of a mixture of inherited and learned knowledge, and it has to be recognized by the individual first and foremost, which alone is hard enough, and then be given a chance to emerge in some form.
Glenn, I am surprised you call responsibility "awesome". Why do you think so? I see at as a hindrance if not meddling with free creativity. Responsibility is connected with expectation: to perform, to satisfy someone or something outside the creative self. It very rare that it produces great work...
