I just learned I’m an “opsimath”.
Besides learning what the word opsimath means (one who learns late in life), I’ve been learning to spread my creative wings. For a few months I have been finding great joy in writing, and last night I actually used acrylics on a canvas and painted a picture!
I still have a lot to learn…and two books, recommended by fellow creative types, are part of my journey of doing so:
- Stephen Fry’s The Ode Less Travelled (Unlocking The Poet Within)
- Betty Edwards’ Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain
I’m already learning from Fry’s book: page xx of the foreward is where I learned the definition of opsimath!
