In times of uncertainty, I have found creativity to be my savior.
Going through a deployment, then dealing with a rare disease that had no cure, left me in despair, so I turned to photography and it saved me. I have been thinking about the story Little Women and what wisdom the mother Marmee had, to bring creativity and art into her girl's lives during a time of war and disease. When we are stripped down to the basics of what we need, we realize the truth and how important the arts can be in times of suffering. I hope I am like Marmee to my boys encouraging creativity, so that no matter what is going on around them, they can find their voice and find joy in their creation.
