Feeling Creative

All my life, whenever I become aware of something captivating — every single time, I feel an irresistible feeling in my hands to draw what I see, paint it, record or photograph it, somehow make it memorable so I could share it with someone later. Especially since I moved to southern California and had a few babies and had time to walk around while raising them at toddler pace, to truly appreciate the jaw-dropping beauty around here.  I seek, feel and enjoy nature, patterns and art everywhere.  Does that happen to you? Very few people around me say they were aware of what I notice. But those who do are the ones I connect with best. This feeling is the reason I went into the communication arts — to express messages concisely and memorably.  Still learning that “concisely” thing. 🙂Screen Shot 2015-07-30 at 12.17.19 PM
