Time to Slow Down...Here's How

Dr. Ilona L. Tobin

Too much to do, too many places to be, too little time to do it all. It's like our national anthem. In all areas of our life—home, work, school—we are increasingly imprisoned by the perception that time is a scarce and limited resource. We rush from one commitment or activity to another and believe that we haven't a minute to spare. We yearn for more time, yet we often feel anxious and guilty when idle.

Creativity Is a Way of Life, Not Just About Making Art

Dr. Ilona L. Tobin

No matter what you may have been told, every one of us is creative. It's as much a part of us as our voice and breath and fingerprints. Creativity isn't just about making art. Cooking, gardening, keeping a journal, handiwork and crafts are all creative acts. Arranging flowers or rearranging furniture, painting a picture or painting a room, singing on stage or singing in the shower––these are all responses to the "call."
