verse for July 16th, 2006

It should not surprise us that creativity arises out of the pit of life rather than the high places. For creativity is the ability to put old material into new form. And it is only when old molds and old ways of doing things are forcibly broken up by need or suffering, compelling us to regroup, to rethink, to begin again, that the creative process starts to flow.

taken from “Beyond Our Selves: a woman’s pilgrimage in faith” by the late Catherine Marshall p.149
