On being creative

I must be creative to get myself through

long hours in limbo, a hair’s breadth from too

little involvement in life’s richness and wonder,

too close to mind-numbing rancorous blunder.

And so, here’s what I do:

  • design and craft unique jewellery
  • design and stitch a variety of individual bag designs
  • sew and knit and crochet

Here’s what I don’t do:

  • market
  • sell
  • maintain a business

I craft because I need to for my well-being, my health, and my sanity. I need to sell my creations in order to make space to create make, and to be able to afford to purchase more supplies. I have a presence on Folksy, and on Pinterest. But still I seem to be missing something. I have decided to share more on my Blog, that links with Twitter, that links with Facebook. If anyone has more advice for me – please share.


I shall begin sharing my goods tomorrow. Hope you’ll check me out.

Being creative is the mainstay of my life, and poetry, prose, and photography is where I express my deepest emotions. I also enjoy the challenge of design and create jewellery, fabric bags, and garments and home items in yarn. Diagnosed with ASD at the age of 68 after fifty years in and out of the mental health system, I now aim to explore and share my experiences over these years. Apart from blogs and short articles I'll share my life in my verse and images.
