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.

About dmdubay

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
