Flashes of Creativity

Last night I spoke to my husband about my recent burst of creativity. I suggested that now I’ve lost the physical ability to create life, my need to create has found new outlets. I mentioned this to my lovely, creative friend Mairi and she said that she, too, had returned to creative pursuits of late. She had a quick look about and found this post by The Menopause Goddess. It seems that we’re not alone. Hubby suggested that I look for or create a group for like minded women, and that’s where Flashes of Creativity was born – thanks to Mairi for the brilliant name.

I’ve got to draw something for #drawingaugust and I haven’t a clue what to do ‘cos I can’t draw or paint and I have no idea why I signed up for this stupid thing in the first place.’ It’s sub-titled Aug 01 2013.
