Piercing the Mundane

Creativity is piercing the mundane to find the marvelous ~ Bill Moyers

This last weekend, we took a short weekend trip to Branson, MO.  We saw the show, Joseph, at the Sight and Sound Theatre.  It was a musical based on the biblical story of Joseph.  It was truly a beautiful production from the script, the songs, the costumers, and the backdrops.  The dancing was a bit stiff and the choreography a bit corny, but it really was a superb production.

The Sight and Sound production team took a five chapter story from the Bible and created a two hour musical extravaganza, complete with live animals going up and down the aisles as they entered and exited the scenes.  Talk about taking the mundane and making it marvelous, those folks have that down.  Joseph is only one of many productions this company has produced in their 35 year history.

And one of my favorite summertime guilty pleasure, America's Got Talent, is all about making the same old singing, dancing, magic, and other variety acts creatively entertaining. 

Most of our dream journeys concern selling our personal brands to others.  If you want to do that, you have figure out how to make make the mundane marvelous and you'll have people clamoring to get at "you." 

What have you done lately to make the mundane marvelous?  I'd love to hear!
