The Best of Classic Play: Creative Families
When I developed the creative family series, my goal was to see how creative families lived. How did they see creativity? Was it important to them? How were parents of young kids able to nurture their own creativity? How did they encourage it in their children? Is creativity something you either have or you don’t? Or is it like everything else, the more you feed it, the more it grows?
I had a lot of questions.
Honestly, I had no idea it would become popular. But judging by the amount of you who check in each Wednesday and send me notes to say how much you enjoy it, I think it’s struck a chord. Maybe there are many of us looking to celebrate a life that is less about schedules and more about celebrating the moment we’re in. Those who rather than ask why, ask why not?
From time to time, I think about what it’s like to live in today’s world. Not only are we forced to be more creative than in the past (from finding jobs to creating our own) we have been given incredible tools to be creative—the internet, self publishing, apps/programs…the list goes on and on.
Where does this leave us? What lessons can we learn from those who seem to be able to adapt to it all?
But all of that is rather grandiose and could, quite possibly, be me over thinking everything.
Why do people like the series? I think it comes down to this: the families featured are all really cool, genuinely lovely, thoughtful folks who inspire us by simply being themselves.
