For many people creativity is a life force that flows through them, maybe it has their whole life. For others, creativity was something in their childhood, to be abandoned by “adult” pursuits, such as career and family. The latter was the case for me. It has been in midlife that I have rediscovered creative energies as being vital to my life. A few years ago I had the opportunity to be in a number of community theater plays, mostly with my kids. It was truly some of the funnest experiences of my life. I got to be a pirate in Peter Pan, the wizard in the Wizard of Oz, President Roosevelt and Bert Healy in Annie, General Genghis Khan Schmitz in Suessical the Musical, and Caiaphas in Jesus Christ Superstar.
Creativity is one very important way that spirituality can be experienced and expressed. I now realize that it is essential to my health and happiness.
