Creativity is our Nature

I believe this whole heartedly, Creativity IS our nature!

This quote really stands out to me. It’s Thursday October 6 and I’m writing posts early, because as I sit in my sister in law’s house, evacuated from my own, trying to tie up loose ends, awaiting the arrival of a big hurricane, I have to be patient. Nature will bring the storm at her pace
