    "AS I SEE IT"
    Volume 1, Number 11, November, 1998
    One of my brothers works for a man who owns a number of rental properties. From time to time, my brother helps in the renovation of a house or apartment after the renters have moved out (not infrequently skipping out on the last month or two of rent). Oftentimes, when people move out, they leave things behind that they do not wish to trouble themselves withbroken-down furniture, old clothes, car parts, and an amazing array of other items. Most of the stuff is taken to the nearest dumpster, but sometimes there are things which are good and usable. Once my brother offered me a nearly-new all-wool topcoat from one of the houses. It fit perfectly. I have also gotten a few LP records that way as well (remember, "vinyl is final"). But one item abandoned by renters skipping out on a couple months' rent disturbed me greatly. It was a Bible. This attractive and expensive copy of the NIV has an inscription on the inside cover: There is much to see in these few words. I reconstruct the scenario this way: a Christian girl decides to marry a non- Christian boy. Her parents are not happy with her choice, but hope to make the best of a bad situation. He probably came to church some with her before the marriage, but afterward neither he nor she showed any interest in God.

    Considering Creativity
    The 'Sylvia Plath' effect Questions swirl around a supposed link between creativity and mental illness. BY DEBORAH SMITH BAILEY
    Monitor staff

    Print version: page 42 Popular culture has long stereotyped poets as depressed and creative scientists as mad. In fact, the idea of a link between creativity and mental illness goes back to the time of Aristotle, when he wrote that eminent philosophers, politicians, poets and artists all have tendencies toward "melancholia." Indeed, there are numerous examples of famous creatorswriters like Virginia Woolf, painters like Vincent Van Gogh, composers like Robert Schumannwho have been highly successful but had or are suspected to have had a mental illness. Some studies have backed up this notion, suggesting that writers, artists and others are more likely to have a mental illness and that people with certain mental illnesses, such as depression and mood disorders, appear somewhat more likely to be creative. While some researchers have found that creative people are slightly more at-risk, others have found more grave connections, such as that they are 30 percent more likely to have bipolar disorder. However, such research is often fraught with methodological problems, including selection bias, controls that are not blinded, reliance on biographies that might play up mental illness, retrospective designs and unclear definitions of creativity. And considering that not all studies have found a link between creativity and mental illness, the jury is still out on the specific nature of the relationship, says psychologist and creativity researcher James Kaufman, PhD, of California State University, San Bernardino.
