“Daddy, I want to colour!” These are the first words out of my daughter’s mouth every day when she dashes in our front door after playschool.
I can tell she has something in her mind that needs to get on paper. She doesn’t have time to take off her jacket or sit down, or even go to the bathroom.
Watching my daughter, I have come to believe that my college psychology teacher was wrong. The fundamental human drive – what it is that we most want to do and need to do – is not to have sex, nor to have power. It is to create. That’s what “soul” is.

That’s what makes us human.
To create is to be happy.

The only unhappy ones among us are those who lost their crayons somewhere along the way.
