oh, the possibilities!

"The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls."  Pablo Picasso

"I fell up."  Ben Bethard, the imagination behind the photograph

"The world isn't full of artists and talentless rubes, and creativity isn't the property of a privileged few.  Rather, it's an attribute of every human being.  Those who think, 'I'm not creative' prove this statement untrue every time they make a peach pie, plant a flower bed, or plan a party.  To be human is to be creative, and to understand why, one need look no further than Genesis 1 and  2... As image bearers, we have been given the gift of creativity, and it allows us to impose order upon disorder, to imagine and make, and to steward the world in such a way that it's better than we found it."  
Mike Cosper

Here's to pulling order out of disorder, seeing the possibilities within ourselves and all around us, and to the Master Creator who made us in His image.  Now go make some time and space to create today!
