have you ever had a conversation with a friend, where one comment sets your life in a whole new direction? today, i visited the creative studio of a friend i hadn’t seen in 9 months because of COVID. we talked for 3 ½ hours. it felt so good to be sharing creative ideas again. while she didn’t say any one thing that is going to change my life, the conversation itself made crystal clear to me my need for creative community. a creative life is often very solitary. we spend a lot of time with our own ideas. in our own heads. today i realized the importance of bouncing those ideas off a supporter. not just a cheerleader–but rather a critical, informed, and challenging supporter. the gentlest of suggestions can throw open worlds of possibility. thank you martha, for your generous and creative support.
