Life is more important than art; that's what makes art important.
James Baldwin

What are you creating right now?

Are you making art?
Are you creating memories?
Are you creating relationships?
Are you building and honing skills?
Are you making time to care for yourself and others?

All of these are important. All of these are valuable. All of these can work together to create a meaningful life.

As the world continues to reel from the waves of Covid that are effecting so many lives, are you taking time to do the important things? What are your important things? I'm incredibly grateful to have found time over the past few months to safely do all of these things. I'm tired but fulfilled. 

I'm thinking of you my friend. Are you OK? Have you been able to do the important things?

What is important to you and how can you make time for creating it?
