I used to spend most of every day writing Songs and Poetry back in the 90’s and sadly I’ve lost my touch a bit although it could be argued a fair bit of what I do now with Web & Graphic Design is creative too. I remember the great pride I had in myself for writing a piece of music or poetry and whether it was good or not didn’t matter! All that mattered was that I created something from scratch, from a blank canvas as such.
Being creative forces you to use a little more of your brain that you normally would and use a different part ot it too. Its nothing but a heatlhy excercise and it helped keep me sane in hard times. There are few nobler endeavours and I must get back to it soon.
