    Creativity *is* about wonder, and joy, and exploration. The fun you have as you work your way through *doing* it. Not about producing a perfect, sterile, unflawed product that nobody really likes anyway.

    I’m so happy to see you kept and FRAMED your childhood “Picasso,” and I really like all the rainbows around her/you. Nice post!

      @ The Writing Goddess, thank you! My parents kept a lot of my writing and art from my childhood. Our close family friend actually framed my self-portrait a few years ago, which was such a wonderful present. He did the matting and everything himself. Now, we just need a frame for Picasso. 🙂 You’re so right about the fun you have while working on something. I think that’s why creativity is also really about being in the moment and enjoying the present.

      Oh, and thanks for participating in the series! 🙂

    I love this, Margarita! So many beautiful (and poeticly written) insights here. You’re the bees knees, my friend. 🙂

    I think creativity is a great way to organize our thoughts and express our emotions. It is a frequent topic on my own blog about mental health.

    Thanks for sharing this!

    that angst-ridden adolescence, when our childhood creativity seems to disappear…so glad you’ve re-discovered the joy of being creative! and you are so right: its not just the visual arts, creativity expresses itself it all aspects of life.
