Creativity

This is a page of all the creative things I and some other people do. I love to write, sing, dance, act, draw, decorate, photograph, observe! I think everybody should be given plenty of opportunities to explore their creative side. Today’s society makes it hard to be creative, people slogging their guts out at work to pay the mortgage want to zone out in front of the TV or social media to escape into another world rather than find what is inside them. It is important that we find the time to be creative and express ourselves.

Creativity is not simply painting a picture or playing a musical instrument, of course, it is those things, but creativity is also cooking your evening meal, coming up with an answer to a problem at work, planning your holiday, rearranging or designing your garden or figuring out ways in which your football team can beat the opposition. Parents are among the most creative people ever to live. Apart from creating babies, they have to create household design, create breakfasts, lunches and dinners, create plans for holidays, create events and entertainments for guests and visitors, and create excuses for their partners and children! In a very real and most important sense of the phrase, they are literally creating the future.

Here is some pictures of some of the creative things I have made...
