You might be thinking, ok that is nice, but was it good? Was the symphony good? I really don’t think that matters. Henry could barely hear and see and yet he spent years writing his notes and humming his symphony. I think that is pretty good for a 98 year old. But those of you who believe that the outcome is more important than the journey I will tell you his symphony was beautiful.
Each and every one of us has a creative soul. If our creator is creative and we are in the image of our creator….well then we are creative. It may take us a while to finally explore our creative passion as it was for Henry but that doesn’t mean it can’t be done.
Every once in a while I will work with a client who thinks they are too old. I smile and think of Henry EVERY single time. Yes, age can slow us down but that is no excuse to NOT to do it.
When Henry said “before I die” those words lodged in my brain. Every day I let my creativity out to play. I don’t want to get to the end and think about all the creativity projects I want to do before I die. What is your creative dream? What are you waiting for?
