A while back my friend Erin said she realized she feels out of sorts when a day goes by without making something. Baking bread, taking a picture, working on a sewing project; whatever. The creative act makes her feel steady, more like herself, or something along those lines. I thought the statement was brilliantly self-aware. Since then, I've paid attention to myself in that regard; I'm the same way. Amidst the busyness of every day those small and big acts of self-expression keep our sails full.
