Another thing I am grateful for is the creative spirit I see all around. Everyone, I think, has a creative spark and the satisfaction one feels when tapping into this energy is revitalizing. It is as though new life comes out of saying yes to creation. It seems that it is a deep part of our self that resonates with our own creative genius. The urge to create brings forth tremendous good in the world. So many variations and expressions are necessary to the total picture. Everything, from cooking, to dance, to knitting, to creating a welcoming atmosphere, to singing, drawing, woodwork, photography, writing, even simply being a smile in a frowning world: all connect us to the one creator of all goodness. It is impossible to enumerate all the ways in which people create, but I’m going to be watching and giving thanks for all that I see.
