It seems that we are surrounded by fear. Fear of loosing our jobs, growing old, family struggles, and personal dilemmas. We are bombarded daily, with not only our own fears, but the media, and the people around us. This is definitely the time to keep your knitting close. Through creativity, you can change your focus to more positive, healing thoughts. You will be astounded by the subtle changes that will occur in your life when you focus on being creative. I encourage you to find ways to reach out to others when you can. In fact, it will become easier for you to reach out through the creative process.

I was inspired by a recent story on TV about a group of artists in the Detroit area buying abandoned homes in neighborhoods on the brink of disaster and fixing them up to use as artists spaces and homes. This was a real chance to breathe new life into a community that had lost hope and was struggling. Creativity and problem solving can really help us during difficult times. I hope you are being creative and overcoming any fear that you have in your life. You are not alone.

Fear is only an illusion. It is the illusion that creates the feeling of separateness-the false sense of isolation that exists only in your imagination.
- Jeraldine Saunders

If you have found creative ways to overcome your fears, please share them.
