Happiness is indeed a choice

; Has it ever occurred to you that our wounds are what drive us to create? After all, loss in one arena compels us to compensate in others. Think about the senses. The way loss of sight leads to heightened senses of smell, touch and hearing for the blind. What if the same is true of the creative process? What if those who’ve lost something compensate for it in their works? In that case their damage helps them. It’s what compels them to create. — Jennifer Cody Epstein (The Painter of Shanghai)
