My name is Cheryl. I am a person who believes in the transformative power of creativity. I like to share thoughts & experiences and work together with others, because we learn so much from each other. I also like to promote the good work that others do. That’s basically why I started this blog, to promote creativity, art, and everything that’s beautiful and good.
Blogging has also been my therapy as I transition through the stages of life I was not prepared for; a chronic illness, loss, grief, aging, the empty nest syndrome, etc. Staying creative helps me feel productive and appreciate life. I’ve done a lot of different jobs in my life and most of them had nothing to do with art. Regardless of what kind of work one does, life requires creativity (especially when raising a family). Creativity keeps things fresh, alive & moving forward.
I live in NH with my (Australian) husband, 3 adult kids in transition, 2 cats, a guinea pig and a rabbit. I’ve traveled a lot too, 21 countries and 2/3′s of the USA. I grew up in Florida and all my kids were born in Florida, so people often ask my husband & I why we are living in NH. It’s a long story. It’s not easy being an international family, but someday we hope to make a residence in AU as well.
The world is a beautiful place so I believe in appreciating it and taking good care of it. I love the art, traditions, celebrations and clothing of different cultures. People have so much beauty and goodness to share with each other. That’s why I hate war & crime & anything that hurts people’s hearts. I strive to be a peacemaker and a catalyst for all that is good.
