It was fall gallery tour night. I walked Lowe Mill: chocolate, blown glass, russian terriers, paintings, photographs, ceramics, art classes, live music, digital art, sculpture. I felt like I was floating when I left.
I want more of that in my life.
I ran into my senior design professor from over 10 years ago while I stood mesmerized in front of a painting overlaid on a photograph based on a bb gun hanging on the wall. We made small talk about my current work and then he asked me: are you an artist?
My mind spun for a few seconds while I tried to figure out what to say. No, but I want to be. is what I wanted to say. No, but I am an appreciator. is what came out of my mouth.
There’s a gap between where I am and where I want to be. I want to change that.
How do you incorporate creativity into your life?
