Age Is No Barrier

At what age does a person give up the drive to be creative? At no age! We can be creative throughout our lifespan! Look at Grandma Moses--she began seriously painting at 78 and continued until her death at age 101. (Look in our children's room for three biographies, all titled Grandma Moses [J B MOS].)

There's a woman in Australia, named Loongkoonan, who is 105. She began to paint her fabulously detailed works in her 90s. Read about her here.

So what are you waiting for? Now's the time to begin being creative! You can write, do art, knit, design a butterfly garden, write a song, take tap lessons, etc. Julia Cameron has a new book, It's Never Too Late to Begin Again: Discovering Creativity and Meaning at Midlife and Beyond [eBook] to help you on your way!
