Today’s Gift


Being alive is being creative. You need do nothing but affirm your aliveness.

—Gay Bonner

What does it mean to be alive? Does it mean merely breathing, eating, and moving around, or is there more to it? Being alive can mean different things to different people. To some, it’s sewing a baby quilt for a new life about to be born. To others, it’s singing, or walking, or running. Still others find it in the exhilaration of skiing, or the tropical splendor they find when scuba diving.


Each of us has our own favorite activity that lets us feel our creativity and vitality, that lets us feel a part of the larger world. Two gifts these activities leave us with are joy and energy. Joy is one of the most creative forces we can call on, and energy gives us the power to do it well.

What will my creative activity be today?
