An Invitation to Ponder
When I was a kid, I had a “junk drawer.” The bottom drawer of my tall six drawer dresser was for stuff that didn’t fit anywhere else. The other drawers were for socks, underwear, tee shirts, etc. But my “junk drawer” was for anything that did not fit into nice neat categories. You might find a baseball, a special rock from the creek, an unfortunate captured butterfly, or Grandpa’s shiny silver nickel.
Life has junk drawers too. Life doesn’t always fit into safe, neat folders. Sometimes we bust out into the unexpected when we least expect it.
I love creativity: a musician who can compose sounds that move me to tears, an artist whose inspiration stops me in my tracks, the Brazilian sunsets that take away my breath, and my father’s out-of-the-box solutions to problems when everyone else was stuck.
What moves you? How do you ignite your creative spark? How do you keep it alive? How do you recognize and appreciate it?
