I recently made a promise to myself- actually it was a bit more of a manifesto in my sketchbook- to do something creative every day. For me, that can mean knitting, sketching, painting, visual meditations, writing, taking photos, something crafty or anything else I may come up with. The opportunities for creativity in one's life really is limitless. And I've been thinking a lot lately on limitations vs. the unlimited. My goal when I started this blog was to literally figure out how to live a creative life while enduring an illness that includes chronic pain.
Unfortunately, I think a lot of my posts have had more of a "venting" feel to them. I recently came across a blog, Fibro Girl Kate's Blog, that makes me want to be a more responsible person in terms of illness and what an individual can still accomplish. After all, I really do believe in the power of the positive (more on this in future posts)! So today, in the spirit of creativity, I took out my little point and shoot camera and just took photos of some things around my home. Here are just a few of them:
