Seriously . . . But Not For Long!

Appearing on "Inside the Actor's Studio," Mike Myers explained that, when it comes to improvisation, seriousness can be a bridge to silliness, a thought similar to my own attitude toward heuristic devices . . . bridges (as I see them) to real creativity. Like Myer's serious side, it is best (IMHO) to use heuristics (playfully) only as long as you need them, until the spirit of creative association jumps up and asks you to dance.
