“The unexamined life is not worth living” ~ Socrates
Why am I mentioning the above, and what does it have to do with art and creativity?
So, the point of this post? I ask you to examine yourself to realize what kind of things help spark your curiosity. (What kind of ideas or questions make you daydream or keep you up at night?) I put forward the idea that maybe you’re like me, and that you may need to expand your world a little in order to find inspiration. (What gives you the urge to try something new and poke about outside your comfort zone?) That you may need to take action towards the things you care about in order to gain confidence and get those creative juices flowing. (Are there issues or themes that you feel strongly about, and what unique action, small or big, will you do about them?) Perhaps like me, you’ll need to dig a little deeper, do some hard, or silly, things, ask some weird, or uncomfortable, questions, and when you find some answers, live them.

Creating art and working on creative projects is my way making sense of life experiences and my environment. I believe that the practice of art helps a person become more of who they are meant to be.
