This story really hit home for me.

Thank you for your response. It’s funny how we are encouraged to be creative and study the arts when we are younger, but when we are older those pursuits come off as frivolous. At what point are we supposed to “outgrow” our creativity? It makes me happy to see that others on Medium are publishing poems and short fiction, keeping the art alive.

Like what you read? Give Rachel B. Baxter a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
