Creativity and Relationships to me are so similar. How hard is it to put your ideas out there, with the premise that someone may completely reject them? How hard is it to extend your heart to someone, with it shaking in your palm?  Does that mean we should never create? Does that mean we never should love? No. Does that mean that it is scary as hell? Does that mean that our heart quivers and our palms are sweating with anxiety? Yes. 

C.S. Lewis, one of my favourite authors puts it this way… ‘To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it careful round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless- it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable…The only place outside of Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers of love…is Hell!’  Creativity and Love co-exist in the land of vulnerability.  Don’t live safe; it only leads to a very boring place. 



PS- Today is the first day of spring, one day closer to summer. Bring it on! (I love it)
