I believed I was a pretty creative person before I retired. But, I realized that I had a lot of pent-up creativity ready to explode out of me.
I had spent 30 years in the corporate world, first as an engineer and then as an information technology guy. Some of that was required a level of creativity, but a lot was mundane. Let’s face it, engineering, at least the version I was exposed to, did more to stifle creativity than it did to expose it.
