How do you express yourself creatively? There are many ways to do this. As a child, I discovered the piano and delighted at how I could travel where – ever the music took me. It made me feel free as a bird. I also found that I could put all my emotions into whatever piece of music I was playing. I noticed the terrific feeling of joy that I received from it. I also noticed that when I played when I got upset, I could relieve those tensions.
I never quit playing the piano. Luckily, almost every place my family moved to, the family who lived there before us had left behind their old piano. The piano gave me the freedom to express myself creatively. Soon, I moved on to the organ, where I thought I could express myself even better!
When I was still in elementary school, I discovered all the different worlds, adventures and things that I could be when I read books. Soon, I was making up stories in my head. I found that when I told these stories that I could travel to the darkest jungles of Africa or anywhere. I slowly came to the realization that I could express myself this way too. In fact, while watching my brothers, sisters and friends, I saw that you can express yourself creatively in several ways. Some like to draw or paint, some like to sing, some just like to talk while others like to build things or create videos.
When I got older, I started writing these stories down and even made more up. In doing this, I could be that chimpanzee, cowgirl or fish. Now, I’m finding that I can even travel through back through time.
Would you like to express yourself creatively? Just go to the Youth Tube page of Plum Tree Books and participate in our upcoming projects!
