Creativity is life’s primary force. Everyone is a creative, because creativity is problem-solving. Problem-solving is working within a set of restrictions. Sexuality itself is creative, beyond procreation. All your life experiences are available to you each time you solve a problem. In this charming and enlightening discussion with Lisa Segal, about the creative force within us all, we unearth some of the secrets for artistic expression. The interview weaves Lisa’s talents as a poet, author, artist and sage about the joys of aging and the importance of art as an element of a joyful and fulfilling life.
