Right here, this is what it’s all about.
Have you ever noticed how creative people, when they are not being highly-strung about mistakes in their creations, tend to be more content than non-creative people? I have seen that people with hobbies, especially creative hobbies tend to be happier, calmer people. I want to be creative, I want to be happier and calmer.
My main creative pursuits at the moment mainly involve yarn or thread. There is something completely magical to me about the process of taking what is essentially a ball of string, either a hook, shuttle, needle or some sticks, folding it all together just right and hey presto! Fabric! I know the stitches but for some reason, knitting, crochet and tatting will always be just a little ‘wonder’ful and like a magic trick to me.
I also dabble in creative writing from time to time but some bad feedback has put me off pursuing that more seriously. So to deal with my need to write, I have here, this little space on the interwebs, to call my own.
This space is to encourage people to do anything at all that is creative. Create something, perhaps even from nothing, share it with others and see if it doesn’t just help your heart to sing a little louder.
