everyday creativity

Although I have talked about it, I am not now proposing to perform and report on a creative act every day.  Instead, this post is about small 'c' creativity; a no-doubt important form of creative action but one that works inside domains or genres and does not change or create a new domain.

Below, I show a broken strap on my computer-bag and how i fixed it with a piece of paperclip and a pair of pliers.

First, the unbroken side, complete with a washer.

Now, the broken - washerless- side.

And now that side again, but with the mangled bit of paperclip.  Oh, and great definition of the ridges of my palm.
