ICYMI: A Collection of Creativity Clips

The Artist's Road

An image from my 2010 cross-country road trip and a caption from Committed I didn't share on Melissa Crytzer Fry's What I Saw blog, from Mormon Temple, Salt Lake City, Utah: "I learn that when the first Mormon settlers arrived here in Utah in 1848--the only place left the four thousand or so believers could find to live where no one was constantly trying to kill them--their first year's crops fell under attack from a scourge of crickets of Old Testament proportions. Then, out of the sky as clear as the one above us, salvation arrived in the form of cricket-devouring seagulls. 'We call it the Miracle of the Gulls,' the shorter one says through teeth even more stunning. It would have been far simpler for God not to have sent the crickets in the first place, but I still like the story."
