Creativity

create

A few weeks ago a blog-friend challenged me to go out and photograph some things that spurred on my creativity. I didn't have time to do it that day but I have been mulling over it for a while now. I've come to the conclusion after a bit of time that I want to do something new. I'm not sure what yet. It could be as simple as attending a photography workshop or as involved as taking some serious writing classes. I'll let you know when I know. I'm not exactly planning on a new job or worse yet a new career but the mental gears are turning. I think that the years of medical and graduate school, residency training and parenting young children took a major bite out of the creative me and it is finally coming back to life. I still don't have time for any major life changes. Those will have to wait until I'm an empty nester in 8 or so years. But it feels exciting to feel the internal winds may be shifting a bit.

For what it's worth, I think the creative you is doing just fine.

Your photos are lovely and these are so colourful and well defined. Photography classes sound right. I'm thinking of taking some myself when I have time..
Please learn from me and don't wait till you're an empty nester.
