This past Christmas, I watched the Disney/ Pixar movie "Soul", and it has become one of my favorites from those production studios, right up there with Monsters. Inc. I've become a sucker for children's movies again, since all of them have such beautifully simple and magically delivered wisdom.
As a creative, I am well attuned to that spark, the creativity that lives in all of us, but is often forgotten or pushed aside by "real life".
