Kurt Vonnegut wrote of creative expression:
“The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”
So tell us a story or write us a poem, even a lousy one, as long as it makes life on this great big spinning rock a bit more bearable.
