“Art will take you places”
~ from the video,”Art,” by Andrea Dorfman
If you’re anything like me, you’ve questioned the worth of your creative endeavors (be it writing or music, painting or sculpture) once or twice (…or more). But in times when budget cuts target the arts first, it has become even more important that we embrace – and encourage – creativity, for ourselves and others.
This video says it all.
Thanks to Dot Hearn, who introduced me to this video a while back. I could watch this over and over.

Inspiration is all around us.
Yesterday was one of those days when I thought, why write? Staring at the future, instead of staying in the moment, I pouted through the morning. I wrote anyway (it was Wednesday, I had to), and I felt better.
Today on The Writing Vein blog*, I watched this video about art, its mystery and its draw:
How the future unfolds doesn’t matter so much. I just love to write.
* I don’t know where Dot finds such lovely music and videos, but I’m glad she posts them. I could watch this one again and again (and I have) Thanks, Dot!
