I read magazines to entertain myself, not to feel like a failure, which is why I always skip the fashion sections. I was not in the mood for a lesson in creativity. I had a to do list a mile long; adding oil painting to it was not going to happen.
Still, my curiosity got the better of me one morning. The kids were playing nicely together and I actually got to eat my breakfast in peace. Not knowing what to do with myself, I opened the cast aside magazine.
I turned to an article entitled “The Creation Myth” and–though I’m loathe to admit this–I would have to say I had an “Aha moment.”
