Creativity

Imagine a world with no art

A world with no music

No books

No stories

No poetry

No drama, no films, no photography

No design

No interior decor

No beauty for beauty’s sake

Creativity

It starts in the soul.

It is rooted in Eternity.

It grows life and beauty out of barrenness. It creates something from nothing. It nourishes the world, and gives life to things beyond itself. It springs from the depths of our thought and dreams.

It makes our lives beautiful.

(I read about a medieval painting in which the soul was depicted as a newborn child held in the arms of an angel on its way to heaven, and I love that way of showing the preciousness of the soul)
