On creativity and play : Helen Cullen

“Consider this – when you ask a child to draw you a picture, or tell you a story, they never refuse because they ‘aren’t creative.’ We just learn as we get older whether we’re allowed to call ourselves the anymore because we’re trained only to invest time in what we are ‘good at.’ And its a tragedy – when we can’t create purely for the joy it brings us. Don’t be afraid to play, Fionn. It’s good for the soul.”

The Dazzling Truth

Published by: emergingfromthedarknight

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.

  1. So true! Children act out of pure instinct most of the time because they haven’t been domesticated by society’s standards that imply they aren’t good enough. I think we could all take some creative advice from merely watching how children interact with the world.
