The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.
Do you have any idea how much time, energy and focus went into this hairdo?

I’ve always liked the Jung quote above

You can never have too many Jung creative play quotes.
Or outfits for your (shh favourite) doll.
