Every home and occupant of a home or a space should always dedicate a space for art and creativity. It can be the entire home and perhaps just one room is dedicated as an art studio, or even as simple as a small table for art projects. L Bernstein said " Art never stopped a war .... That was never its function. Art cannot change events, but it can change people. It can affect people so that they are changed because they become enriched, ennobled, encouraged - that they act in a way that affect the course of events by the way they vote, they behave, they think."
I do a little art project almost daily, either writing, cooking, designing, painting, drawing, flower arrangements. For me it is the best expression of who I am and I celebrate the creative spirit and what emerges from within my being. I created a little map box for a friend, so simply and inspired by the notion of the Monarch butterfly migration one of the most spectacular natural phenomena in the world. The more I create the more I discover what is hidden inside myself. I have only scratched the surface of what has being lying dormant. I encourage everyone to step into some self exploration in the field of creativity and just like the butterfly watch the metamorphosis, your home and space will appreciate the beauty you create.
