Relearn Your Creativity
I was inspired by this blog today: Relearn your creativity.
As I’ve been discussing in my blog and with the LBD gang, creativity is an essential part of being human, especially if we want to be happy, healthy humans.
I love the link Cushman makes between creativity and reading. Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, the Marvel franchise movies, TV shows and books; all of these remind us that creativity is healthy and fun. It is OK to believe in magic. It’s good for us to ready fairy tales, science fiction and fantasy. In fact, it may improve our quality of life.
Oh, and just so Cushman doesn’t feel like he’s the only one reading and rereading books, here are my favourite rereads:
- Running in the Family by Michael Ondaatje
- The Giver by Lois Lowry, (as well as the other books in her quartet)
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
- Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Get creative. I dare you.
