I’m just wondering how many of us are creative.
I write poetry and I’m currently working on a novella. I’ve found that creativity helps me with some of my anxiety issues.
Oh yes; together with walks in the countryside, getting absorbed in something creative is what keeps me sane. I'm a bit of a "serial hobbyist", so over the years, I've dabbled in quite a lot of different things...
Like Senior Moment, I'm also an avid bodger. As I've rarely had much spare cash in adulthood, I've quite often made my own furniture (functional though rarely pretty!), and I'll always have a go at fixing something myself before throwing it away or calling a professional.
I can relate to all of those - never actually played in a band but did everything above apart from drums pretty much. I started on a ZX81 and was hooked from the beginning. Meccano was a love of mine alongside Lego. Rather than being too artistically creative with those two though, I'd go for biggest / tallest / fastest / most powerful / most dangerous (the last three when motors were added :-) )
I'm done with Christmas Cards said:most dangerous
Ha ha - yes! Crossbows were my particular favourite - I snapped quite a few of my Lego beams by stressing them a little too far (most of the rest were ruined by chewing, even well into my teens!)
