To bravely go where no explorer has gone before into the brain of a half-wit creative like myself. I get caught up in the jumble of all of my ideas and I am looking at what creating and creativity can do for myself and others. I have plans to share more with you all as I merrily go along in my life. I am working out some new ideas and I will be inviting all of you creative people, artists, writers, photographers, poets, designers and the like to join me on my blog as guests! I want to get your answers to the questions I have just finished asking myself. If you are interested in being part of my blog please feel free to contact me through this blog. I am looking at posting a guest interview along with creative work once a month. I am also going to take the time to write about some of my creative inspirations, the people that really have me thinking and figuring things out. Until next time :”BE BOLD, BE BRAVE, BE AMAZING” — Simon de Pury
This my friends was a challenging question to answer without sounding pretentious or simplistic. So here it goes, I would like to make a world where people are not afraid to express themselves through their creativity and they are on purpose in their lives, living their truth.
I know this sounds simplistic, but you know I really believe we can do it if we just get over ourselves and free ourselves from the fear of being who we are meant to be! I want to inspire, experiment, create and experience all that we are here for. Let’s get started on those projects that will evoke all the emotions that we want to explore, be daring and brave, go on I know you can. You can do it quietly and alone or you can invite a group of people to help you create your dreams. As Ms. Valerie Frizzle in the The Magic School Bus series often exclaims “Take chances, make mistakes, get messy!”
Each and every single one of us are “Makers” , so ask yourself, what is it that you really want to make? With each project there may be a different answer, but at least we are out there being true to ourselves and dancing to our own music. Now go get messy! Don’t forget to have fun whatever the journey you are embarking on! Experiment, Inspire, Create, Experience….
Creativity is related to all aspects of our lives at least that’s the way that it works for me. Through my creations whether it is a story, a poem, a collage or a quiche I am aiming to discover more about my thoughts and my own resilience in the face of challenges. I am hoping to bring light to the dark, to understand my soul and my purpose for being here. Science is a form of creativity that advances the world, but so can creative thought, for instance the way one understands the world can be changed by reading a book, hearing a song or watching a TV program or movie.
A good example that is interesting to me is how my life has changed because of thought patterns that have formed due to watching a show such as Supernatural, it is not about scary things it’s about fighting the “good-fight”, it has changed my thoughts about death, angels, and all the unseen in our physical world. There is a new thought pattern in my creative mind that is so much more life affirming and it takes me to a new level of creativity that I did not access before. This is what happens when something resonates with us and then we are able to come to a new level of understanding. That is what my creations are aiming at!
What a joy it is to resonate and connect with others and to come away with deeper meaning in our lives. I discover things about others too, it is a co-creation with God and the universe. The gifts of creativity are ours to explore and I am so interested to hear all about what others are reaching for in their creative lives. We have so much to explore and this is an ever expanding universal order. Take care and please keep creating into the light and the dark, let’s find out more about our-selves and each other! May peace, light and joy be with you.
