Its in the Process not the Product

What draws you to create? What leads you to want to write prose, or verse or create illustrations? What drives you to craft, to sculpt to paint?

What is it that makes the time spent in your creative endeavors help to recharge your stores of energy? I know my answers to those questions, but I’d appreciate hearing yours.

I love the time and space when no one else is awake. In that time, I can let my thoughts wander and create without the necessary focused distraction of background music. Even if it’s for a short amount of time and results in only a few sentences, it puts a better spin on the day.

At present, I don’t have as much time as I’d like to give to my writing. What I do have feels like stolen time and often occurs before the work day begins. Without it I feel diminished, but with it I feel energized and creative. I’m pretty certain that transfers into my being able to be a better teacher, a better human.

Creativity adds a dimension to my day that I miss when it’s not available. I’m thankful and grateful that I have the opportunity to acknowledge and appreciate it.

Wherever it is that your creativity lies, I wish you joy in your process.
