Many of us stayed after dinner to engage with the artists to learn about their craft. We even had the opportunity to work with the potters wheel, smith or blow glass. As we returned to the hotel, I stood in the lobby of the hotel talking with several architects. The energy sparked by discussing the magic of going from molten glass to finished product was tangible.
I continue to be amazed in meeting people who have deeply connected with the creative side of their nature. I believe if we are all made in the image of God and God is Creator, then each of us have that ability to create--even if it isn't in something universally acknowledged as art. At dinner one evening, I heard an artist from Des Moines speak about how many people who don't consider themselves creative, are actually wildly creative when it comes to cooking and food. Then someone at the table asked about our best meal ever.
If you are ever in a conversation at dinner with people you only partially know, you should pull this out of your pocket as a conversation starter. People can get very passionate about food!
It was a fantastic week away, but I am really looking forward to time at home with family and friends. Now that my early morning blog post is done and the sugar gliders are getting sleepy I'm going to go back to bed and cuddle with my husband. Signing off...
