.. is creativity empathy in action ??..
Creativity is a process, while empathy is the capacity to experience the feelings of others.

So, empathy can be a useful component of the creative process, but it's separate and distinct.

As Dave would say, or something like that.

Where have you put Dave, by the way?

I'm sure you've heard this one about Churchill:
Not sure who the woman was, but she said to Churchill: If you were my husband, I'd poison your tea, to which he replied: If you were my wife I'd drink it!
Faulkner, about Hemingway: "He has never been known to use a word that might send a reader to the dictionary."

Hemingway, about Faulkner: "Poor Faulkner. Does he really think big emotions come from big words?"

Definitely, but what about for our enemies? Or perhaps those who are not necessarily our enemies, but of no relation or aquaintance to us?

<quoted text>Sure, we can agree to disagree, but this is a matter of fact, not a matter of opinion.
As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,—as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen [Muslims],—and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan [Muslim] nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.
Yes, some of the founders were christians, but many were not, but either way all of them had the good sense to know that government and religion don't mix. Interpret the establishment clause any way you like - but it clearly states that the government shouldn't meddle with, promote, or otherwise associate itself with religion.

.. isn't empathy also the ability to experience everything around us (including people) which ultimately leads to the creative process (art)? For me, empathy (feeling) facilitate creativity ..

.. during the day, Dave's busy authoring his dissertation on EM theory to revolutionize physics. At night, he cruises hot tubs and plays with his toy (he calls it a generator)..

<quoted text>Not sure it's a secret or how much my "training" my body has to do with it- I do eat right most of the time and I do a lot of power walking, but I have to give credit to genetics:
My mother's mother at 72 years old was passing herself off as 58 in order to get jobs and my mother- up until she became very sick with cancer- always looked a good 20 years younger than she was.
But I do find it harder to get up off the ground when I am gardening- and the reason I sit on the ground to begin with is because my back can't take bending as well as it used to, so at 58, I am feeling the effects of physical aging, but I can deal with that since my very youthful mind, heart and spirit really offsets it a lot!
Unfortunately, my genetics aren't so great! I don't look 40, don't act 40, eat right and exercise daily...but like you...Gardening is becoming a real issue. I love, love, love my flower gardens and landscaping. I'm finding it almost impossible this year to keep them weeded out though. My ankles and knees ache horribly! I took a PDO from work today to clean out my flower beds before the cold weather hits...and couldn't even finish one!:(. Hence, my sudden desire to be 19 again. I suppose I should just be thankful to have a youthful mind and spirit...but I sure do miss being able to do what I want, when I want, without aching. Oh well...I guess it's time to teach my son a little about landscaping! He's gonna love his Saturday morning!:)

You two had better get along.

I like you both, and dissention would upset me - and you won't like me when I'm angry.
