Creativity takes courage.
~ Henri Mattisse
Creativity is a universal language
- RA Celebrini
We are living in a time that is full of seemingly insurmountable issues facing the people of today and even more so our future generations. Remaining creative does not mean just creating art. It means to live in a manner that is open and adaptable to the health and vitality of all living things. In a society and culture that doesn't value all human life equally or fails to accept and recognize our impact and relationship to the natural world and environment art will never be important. Creativity is necessary to address complex human - created issues. It is not just for artists. It is an integral piece of being human and never more important than at this time in human history in particular in our varied leaders. Can we each in this generation find our courage to address the complex issues of this world. Each in our own way , with our own abilities , as well as collectively. This will demand our creativity and our courage . Yet still find the courage to use this time , to enjoy nature , each other , those that matter , to take care of our own health and wellness , including the mind , body and spirit - and maybe even find a little bit of time for fine art , music , food and good wine , and other good things , as any decent creature would.
