I celebrated my 50th birthday in a classroom at SUNY/Buffalo State discussing one of my favorite topics, creativity, with my grad school cohort. This past weekend, the International Center for Studies in Creativity at Buffalo State--the first accredited college and graduate program in creativity in the world--celebrated its 50th anniversary. I wish I could have been there to join in the celebration and to reconnect with friends and colleagues. Instead, I was at Maine Media Workshops practicing and teaching what I learned at Buff State. Thanks, Alex Osborn, Sid Parnes, Ruth Noller and all of the amazing professors along the way who have made this such a great program--one that is changing lives and changing the world.
