Creative Output

The best thing about creative output is that it is non-demanding.

Music, literature, painting, photographs, or any other form of expression - none of it asks anything of you, none of it requires you to interpret or enjoy it in any specific way, none of it needs to be appreciated or rewarded to become great.

It is what it is.

The creator puts it out there for the world - to take it or leave it, to love it or hate it, to interpret it any which way.

This is what makes art so enduring and timeless.

By not forcing itself on others, by not demanding anything from its audience, by simply existing, simply being - it becomes powerful in spite of itself.
