Yabba Dabba Doo!

I read a notable news story yesterday. Apparently, some old rock art was recently discovered in Australia.
No, no, I am not referring to a mint condition KISS album cover from the 70’s.
I’m talking about a fragment of cave wall displaying a charcoal sketch –
that is 28,000 years old!
Well, you know what this means, don’t you?
Kids have been driving parents up the wall with their wall art, like, FOREVER!
No, actually it means that the desire to create art has been around forever. As in, it is hardwired into our DNA.
And that is why my head nearly pops off whenever I hear adults claim that they are not creative.
Not possible.
As Lady Gaga would say –
“Baby, you were born this way.”

PROMPT: Get in touch with your inner cave child – they are YOUR walls, after all! Visual artists – practice some primitive art. Writers – a cave kid protagonist would be Flintstone fantastic!


  1. I always say the same thing. We all have creative outlets. I know someone who's art is setting a gorgeous table. ^_^
