Over the last few weeks I’ve been in full creative mode. I’ve been writing poems, working on book manuscripts and creating visual art. The last part is the most surprising to me. I’ve never been one to draw. My creative outlet has usually been through speaking and creating and non fiction writing so creating the art you see was worth celebrating for me. I’ve actually painted five pieces over the last nine months. Though these pieces may never be in high end art galleries, they’ll hang somewhere in my home or office as a talking point for my creative ego self.
