Why do We Create?

There is more to the projects I take on than entertainment. It is an innate desire to produce something. Maybe it’s the survival instinct in all of us — we believe we can leave a legacy, and survive just a bit longer. We want to be remembered by the things we create; a proliferation of ourselves. And hopefully it is good enough to serve as an eternal thumbprint of our lives. 

I think mine are all still childish. I play with motorcycles, build raygunsrepurpose furniture. Some people create art, or businesses. Others children and relationships and really, really good conversations. And we all love doing it. It doubles as a sense of purpose.

And isn’t that what we all want? To belong?
