black and white maternity

I really feel like art and life are inseparable.  Try as we might, we humans can’t not be creative.  I think it’s a fallacy that “art” and “creativity” are often considered to be only in the possession of people like me who choose to make a vocation, or an avocation, out of their craft.  Creativity…
