The Creator Within
How do we create our world?
Day 15 - July 23, 2021 – Wow, I am halfway, 15 of 30 days complete!
Just did my art piece; decided to continue yesterday's theme of nature's beauty. I did a second piece – letting the rocks arrange themselves amidst a river of sand – couldn’t resist because yesterday’s piece was too much fun. I'm also in a hurry, too much to do.
I don't like hurrying in general and especially not when creating, which brings me to a realization I had on the walk home from the studio yesterday.
I was contemplating the term “artist” and while I’m comfortable calling myself an artist, I prefer the term creator because it is all-encompassing, and reflects my true nature and how I feel called to express it.
It doesn’t matter the medium – food, beverage, words, pictures – I like to create. Period. Something from nothing, things discarded by others, beach glass, nature’s gifts - overlooked pebbles, rocks, sticks and stones, shells.
But there’s so much more- foods unknown to others in their natural, unprocessed form – vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds – unique, unusual - pieces and parts discarded – stems, husks, leaves, pits, skins… I love connecting flavors, textures, cultures, and cuisines…
I like to write stream of consciousness, not carefully crafted, but threads that flow through me unbidden, organic, un-orchestrated. There’s a purity here, innocence and safety, beyond intellect and ego. It’s what I enjoy.
I take pleasure in all forms of creation – events, encounters, conversations, relations. That's who I am and how I want to unite my avocation and my vocation, my head and my heart, my spirit, and my soul… through creation.
I love this theme! Though I am hurried today, the turtle slowed the hummingbird enough to receive today's whisperings, and I feel full, beautiful, and joyous.
Now home to finalize the article I've been writing about the world needing to engage in an “Evolution Revolution”...
Until tomorrow... For Your Consideration...
