The late poet philosopher John O'Donohue's concept of beauty goes far deeper than popular culture's superficial view. He wrote, "At the deepest level, creativity is holiness. To create is to further the dream and desire of the creator. When the world was created it was not a one-off, finished event. Creation is a huge beginning, not a finished end. Made in the image and likeness of the Divine Imagination, human creativity helps to add to creation. The unfinished is an invitation to our imagination. This is what happens in experience: the unfinished reaches towards us in order to come to form and expression...Everything we feel, think and do, even the smallest thing, expresses and unfolds the dream of God."
