I've been thinking about the idea of art as therapy. Julia Cameron (author of The Artist’s Way) refers to the “inner artist” as a child. I think that’s true, and that drawing (or any creative endeavor) is a tool that the brain develops in early childhood to adapt to the world and survive existence. A lot of creators feel an unstoppable urge to create, and maybe it’s because that jolt of “inspiration” is really the subconscious trying to tell the conscious mind something that it needs to hear.
This is an instance for folks who follow The Liturgists Podcast, The Alien Podcast, and other things The Liturgists create.
