Oh I See — It's A Bin
We’re always being invited to “think outside the box”.
Ironically, this is a very odd box to pass around amongst ourselves.
If there are circumstances and habits which bind us and confine our thinking, why also factor into the creativity conundrum an imaginary container it takes conscious effort from which to extricate ourselves?
The existence of “the box” is itself “the box”.
Too late to disinvent all these ludicrous flaps of phantom cardboard now, I suppose.
So I’m filling mine with frog-shaped cheese and Men from Mars and other illusory nonsense the better that I might speculate more freely.
