The Courage to Create

“Another word for creativity is courage”

Having a blog and regularly posting your words or art takes a lot of courage. For many writers and artists it is their first step in “putting it out there”.

One of the blogs I regularly visit when I need to smile is Travel and Sing,. I was initially drawn to it because of the way she combines words with illustrations.

Yesterday Linda posted this Autumn Thank You Cake in gratitude to her friends and fans. Scroll down and look at her other autumn illustrations!

Thank you Travel and Sing! Your art inspires me!
