Think fast: what do you like to do with your free time? (I reserve the right to dismiss any and all answers that involve the words “bud light”). While many of us find ourselves fighting with a world imposing an ever-increasing time crunch on our personal lives, for those on the verge of retirement – and “freedom”, if you will – time is suddenly a commodity more easily traded. Whether you’re simply looking to strike a balance between your daily grind and your daily unwind, or entering into an entirely new chapter of life, the Library’s Boom Time Series is ready to pump up your creative pursuits this week with the program My Creative Life. Getting a “hobby” no longer need mean shuffle board.
No matter the age, the human animal is an expressive creature; imaginative play starts early in the impish stages of our development and is a daily function many of us will retain in some way or another throughout our life. Did you doodle in the margins at your last budget meeting? See? This final installment for the Library’s Boom Time Series will focus on nurturing your creative alter ego beyond those napkin scribbles. Drawing on the experiences of numerous Louisvillians who successfully balance work and play, My Creative Life can put you on the path to personal creative genius (and whatever that may entail; art is subjective). Hear from a myriad of locals, including Susan McNeese Lynch, a Marketing Communications Consultant and Actress, Pediatrician and clay artist, Ron Lehocky, Poet and CEO for the Center for Women and Families, Marta Miranda, Band-mates Tom McGee and Con Riggs who daylight as Baptist Healthcare executives and Brad Dillon, a local lawyer with a knack for baking artisan bread. Sound like a well-rounded experience?
Spark your passions this Wednesday night, February 22nd at the Library’s Main branch and find the creative Yin to your daily Yang. Don’t miss this final, free opportunity to enrich your life as the Baby Boomers prepare for that next great revolution. Right on.
The Library’s Main branch is located at 301 York Street
