I've quizzed Ron carefully, searching for the roots of his creativity. He thinks all of us are endowed with a measure of it but that many have its impulses stifled with fear or driven out by caregivers in the name of other values like conformity, memorization or repetition. Creativity happens naturally and requires only to be respected in its early bumbling expressions. He remembers being curious and courageous as a child and he thinks these two qualities feed each other in an upward spiral. His father noted his interest and more often invited him in on work projects than his siblings---and he gained skills in carpentry, motors, machinery, electricity, welding etc.
Anecdote: As I left him in Quartzsite, Az recently, I presented him with a special towing challenge I've been wrestling with---how to attach a single leveling bar to my current hitch to shift some weight forward. He said he would think about it. I left, headed for Blythe, Ca. 8 minutes later he called with a perfectly good solution.
