Finding Your Tribe - Creativity

Last week the university I got my graduate degree from held a week long creativity series.  There were a bunch of speakers and activities that all focused around the theme.  I ended up being able to go to a panel of five people who all work in completely different fields (music, art, education, science and radio).  After that night I felt really good about my decision to leave teaching a few years ago and my brain has been swirling with ideas and motivation to pursue some big projects that I've been working on for a while.  It's becoming an internet cliche to talk about the importance of seeking out your tribe but I'll say that I really think it's important to find people who are on the same path (or parallel paths) as you are and engage with them in some way.

Since I had the day off prior to heading out for the night I had lots and lots of time to pick out an outfit and paint my face so that's what I did.
