Post Title:
By bendywot, Feed Name: Connect the Spots
Preview: As I read the posts from those who are interested in the American Fall, watch the videos, and speak directly to those who've attended, I am so impressed with the range of emotion. Those who are involved, are hopeful beyond expectation. Hope springs eternal, right? It is contagious and synergistic, and the involvement of youth, bumps it exponentially higher.

Post Title: Creativity and Innovation
By Karen1961, Feed Name: Karen1961

It'....

Post Title: Creativity Later in Life
By Karen1961, Feed Name: Karen1961

Title: A Sampling of Creative Skills
Preview: Hi carol,Love the list, but I would probably have an issue with being a risk taker. I think being insecure has not made me a risk taker. Although, I did marry my husband 31 years ago so isn't that being a risk taker? I like silence because it allows me to concentrate more, but listening to music wouldn't be a bad option. I was talking about something similar with Ilsye and she .......
