7/6/16 Notes to Myself:Creative roots...where do they originate? I want to say some of mine came from my family of origin. Both my mother and my father in my opinion were creative thinkers and innovative in many ways. Artists figuratively and literally. In my unconscious observation I internalized this experience. I think it got stirred up with the creative spirit that was organic to my being. So the "roots" go deep, much like a tree. And like a tree, I've needed some pruning! Pruning hasn't been my favorite experience. Although, it's helped my roots and for that reason it's been worthwhile. Opening my limbs and bringing me back to what I thought I didn't need... A spirit of creativity and strong roots to help me grow.
