AwesomelySimple

Charlie Mingus, jazz pianist and composer, reputedly said:

"Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can play weird --- that's easy. What's hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple complicated is commonplace --- making the complicated simple, awesomely simple --- that's creativity."
