I believe that we are all creative deep down inside and that we all ought to create in some way. But as Matisse said, creativity takes courage, and sadly unless we early on  show promise of genius, our culture rarely encourages us to find the courage to dig into our souls and create. It needn’t be a masterpiece. I would venture to say your work won’t end up in a museum. It mightn’t matter a lot to the nation or the world, but it will matter to you and to your family~and that will make it priceless. I hope that on these pages you will find inspiration and courage to be bold and be a little, or a lot, creative.
