In general, I don't consider myself a very creative person. Yes, I like to write - but mostly I record the mundane happenings of my micro world. I've taken a stab at poetry in the past, but the results weren't very good. I love to sing and play music, but I've never created my own songs. And when it came to art class, let's just say I wasn't the highest achiever in the class.
But on Friday, there was a creative energy filling the air. In my e-mailbox, I received a quote that said, "Changing your tools can lead you in new directions." I was also finding myself keenly drawn to images when I am usually more drawn to words. To make a long story short, this creative energy inspired me to go buy some paint on Friday afternoon. I simply purchased some children's washable paint, but as I drove home with my new treasure, I was extremely excited. I was ready to change my tools!
I didn't get to paint until Sunday afternoon, when I was blessed with an hour and a half of uninterrupted Me Time. I can't say that I turned into an artist overnight, but I was rather satisfied with tapping into a new part of myself. I think that some more creative exploration is waiting for me in the future.
