Why we create….

The visionary ceramicist Paulus Berensohn on why we create……I think our creativity is entwined with our spirituality, whether we realize it or not. It’s how we affirm our aliveness, our humanity, its our attempt to answer  questions about why we are here, and of course ,its how we try to leave a mark for when we are  here no longer….its an expression of  our joys, our sorrows and just about everything in between….

Yes, I am trying to ‘sing up the earth”….I love this man.

Why do you create?  Won’t you share with me?…..( and a point I need to make is that creativity is not solely the domain of the arts…pie or a beautiful letter, anyone? :)….namaste, xx K
