Silence as an Incubator for Creativity

Nancy Siegel


Seen as an incubator, silence can serve as a rich and fertile breeding ground as well as a safe and nurturing place for the expression of creativity. Through philosophical and personal musings, this author reflects on a positive side of silence as opposed to the more negative imposed silence that she experienced as a young child. Chosen silence can nourish and nurture and offer an environment with the perfect and necessary conditions that lead to the birth of creativity. As its own entity, silence can offer the pause that is necessary before creativity finds expression. Small “c” creativity, the kind that lives deep inside each of us, that is God given, offers an opportunity to emulate the ultimate Creator, creating something from nothing.
