"For an artist is not a consumer, as our commercials urge us to be. An artist is a nourisher and a creator who knows that during the act of creation there is collaboration. We do not create alone." ~Madeleine L'Engle I have discovered, as I grow older and wiser, that creating and collaborating with others is not only grounding but very necessary for my wholistic well-being. Creating something with someone or many someones has become a critical element in developing new paths as well as validating what I already know. I highly recommend it.
