Connecting to Creative spirit.

This picture reminds me of what I tell the kids all the time, “We are all one body.” And it also makes me miss my camera and intentional time set aside for creativity. Creative expression is one of our fundamental emotional needs and while I had an incredible time teaching the photography workshop for the kids, I’ve been neglecting my own creative spirit. Interestingly, just this week I’ve heard a few other friends feel the same way.

I’ve always struggled to pick up the camera to create on a consistent basis. I think it’s about time I re-read The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles. Steven Pressfield has an incredible way of helping to identify your calling, overcome resistance and become who you are meant to be! I also loved, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear and Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life. These books are chalk full of creative inspiration and absolutely worth coming back to over and over again.
