A Student Response From:
I love Rose's notion on the idea of "fiction" becoming damned. It seems in many instances today we don't allow the common sight to be magical in any way. There has been a deficit of creativity, and exploration for the unusual. It seems many have forgotten how to nourish, as Simpson would say, our creative minds, by letting them wander far. Having worked in haunted house, which stands a creative space that combines acting, costume, makeup and environment, I often let go of reality, let the supernatural and macabre set in, letting thoughts take their creatively dark forms, and I wonder where that mentality is? Why have so many people let their creativity die in open air? It's a question I often wonder, however, Rose B. Simpson leaves me hope for a future full of more creative, fun ways of thinking.
