What admirable qualities attract you to your friends? What glues your relationships together?


Creativity. My friends tend to be artistic. Many are also intelligent, but the one thing they all have in common is that they're creative. Whether in art or writing or crafts or music, they do something creative regularly. Most are either self employed or would like to be. We tend to share an interest in tools, materials, techniques and artistic activity. Many are also experts in something outside the arts, like a marine biologist friend who's a writer.

We also tend to be supportive of each others' creative work in ways that mainstream culture isn't, encouraging rather than discouraging, treating the arts as something real that people learn and do rather than something mysterious that takes a magical talent and no training. On the dark side, many of my friends are overly perfectionist about their own stuff and beat themselves too much, but we all try to overcome that. The hard part in overcoming perfectionism is that sometimes if you take your time and are careful, perfection happens.
