In the book, The Christian Imagination, poet, essayist, and teacher Luci Shaw writes about beauty in her essay Beauty and the Creative Impulse. Here's a snippet from that essay:
"Art is what we say, what we sing, what we show about the beauty that is bubbling up within us like a pot on the boil. It cries out for recognition and response. Because it is so significant, so full of wonder to us--this upwelling from our creative imaginations--we want to show and share it with kindred spirits. And so we have poetry readings and art galleries and concerts and square dances and films and fashion shows and coffee table books."
How do you show and share this upwelling from your creative imagination? Leave a comment and let me know.
