The Urge to Create

23 August, 2020

We all have that urge. To come up with something out of nothing. To build. To form something that’s outside of us.

It doesn’t have to be art. It doesn’t need to be permanent. It doesn’t need to useful or made with exacting skill. What we create is an expression of something inside us. It needs to come out, whether as words or images or music or something you can hold in your hand.

Sometimes, you need to give in to the urge. You’ll be a better person for it if you do.
