When life gets busy, it's easy to neglect our creative selves in favor of practical, day to day tasks. But in doing so, we're starving our brains of the free-form time it needs to effectively process and integrate information. In more fluffy terms, art helps frame our understanding of the world and subsequently gives our lives meaning.
So let's make more time for fun. :) I totally broke my own rule here by not going to dance class tonight, but I did do some creative writing, which should count!
