Creativity Remains a Blessing

The child embraces creativity without limits. I have memories of tucking between my bed and the wall, hidden from view, surrounded by materials for drawing, writing, and colouring. I kept the chaos at bay with my creative endeavours.

Life happened, and the pencils and crayons disappeared. Journals remained, but only for private. Mundanity and routine replaced imagination.

Then illness struck and with dis-ability came time, and that inner urge to create re-emerged. A true blessing.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. It’s a life and sanity saver, for sure–and your art always makes me a tad envious πŸ™‚ I don’t have the eye for photography, nor the eye-hand-brain for drawing/painting. Good thing I can string words together πŸ™‚

      1. You’re sweet–unfortunately cooking and baking don’t last, and I seem to be losing my touch as I get older…oh well, the writing keeps a bit longer πŸ™‚
