“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” — Maya Angelou
I’m deeply grateful for the circumstances that allowed me to be a part of a beautiful live/work community at Warehouse Artist Lofts (WAL). The fact that my creativity was required on Day One to make the space my own was a good sign that this is where I belong. I love my space, my ‘hive’ where I can work, play, and take refuge. And I love the people I’ve gotten to know or know better since moving in over a year ago.
So to share my experience and space with Sacramento Home Magazine for their issue, “The Creative Life” was a no-brainer. Opening my home and workspace to editor Marybeth Bizjak and photographers Gary and Lisa Ashley of Create + Gather was an opportunity to share some of the magic I’ve been fortunate enough to receive at WAL. To be included in an issue with fellow artists I admire, many of whom are my neighbors, was a treat, and to read through it was like looking through a really cool yearbook without the awkward school portraits.
I’m grateful for my creativity — it’s a gift in itself that has generated other gifts in confidence, fulfillment, and connection. I know it’s a gift from my ancestors and the universe and to express it is to honor them. To know that in using it, I have more of it is a reassurance and a blessing, and I’m thankful for the opportunity.
