Why be Creative?

by J.Chouinard

Whether it be a bird building a nest for it's children or a person painting a picture there is something every living thing can create. Creativity defines our individuality. Creativity gives us our voice. Creativity enhances our ability to solve problems, create strong community life, beyond the fact that we learn to enhance our ability to express our thoughts, ideas, beliefs, or values.  A creative lifestyle provides us the perceptual skills to understand and respect each other's creative differences as well. It is a universal language in itself. I am a musician and have been so for over 10 years. Being creative is like eating food, I have to.
