Mood-creativity research reveals that people are most creative when they are in a positive mood and that mental illnesses such as depression or schizophrenia actually decrease creativity. I have been battling side effects of Cleocin for a couple of months. A new rash appeared last night and it's still sore to sit. Hope to make it to an Artists' Reception this week. I hope to get another painting dust covered and wired for hanging next week, but I haven't painted in months. Really hope to get back to the easel next month. Stay tuned!
