Creativity is an active word. It implies movement to create, design, prototype and produce. However, I am discovering that creativity is often born in stillness, solitude and silence.
Today is an official snow day; the second in a row. As I peer outside, our world has transformed to a fluffy white winter wonderland of over 40 cm of snow. The official institutions of the world – schools, universities, city services – have declared themselves closed. So, our world is slowing down. We are staying close to home. We are having moments of stillness. Not by choice and yet it’s a delectable indulgence.
