Last summer I built a patio at the top of my yard. The other night I spent a few rich hours there chatting with a good friend.
As the night wore on a thought occurred to me:
I had not simply built a patio.
I had created a place for meaningful conversations.
I believe that our creative works can serve as signposts and symbols of greater truth. They embody something more than what we see on the surface.
My song might be an incarnation of hope.
Your film may help someone see the world in a different way.
The apple pie that you bake may remind someone that creation is incredibly good.
A well-kept house may affirm order in the universe.
The examples could be endless.
We need to keep creating. It brings more good to the world than we know.
