My random thoughts triggered by this article…I don’t bake every week because I want to be the new Julia Child. I don’t crochet daily so that I can build a lucrative tutorial web site. I don’t color in my adult coloring books because I have aspirations of selling my work in a big name NYC gallery. I don’t meditate hoping I might be the next Dali Lama. I don’t write because I might just be the next J.K.Rowling. I do these things because it’s who I am. I believe that above all else, we humans are creative beings. Creativity is our core essence. When we aren’t creating we get ill.
