Creativity Challenge 7
The Challenge here is to use your creative talent to bring light into the current distress in the world around you, in whatever form that talent takes. Please remember that we are reaching out to a world that is facing upheaval and possibly a great number of changes. Let us reach out to that world and bring it the lessons we have learned by becoming artists and writers. You may use images, photos, music, poetry, prose, short story fiction, personal essay, or whatever suits you best. I will post one word a day, adding a few of my own thoughts about the word. The rest is up to you. You may post as many times as you like, and may use old or new pieces, as you choose. When you have finished creating your post, return here and leave the URL in the comments section below. Then post it to whatever social media you are involved with. If you are not connected to some form of social media, consider joining one now. If not, say so when you post, and I will attempt to post it on mine, which is Facebook.
Word for Today
We have spent the last days, looking at and expressing where we stand: what we believe, think, feel, and how we respond to the world around us. Opposition is when two, or more individuals or groups take different, or clashing positions. Most often that means a heated argument, or violence. That isn’t what we are aiming for at this moment. I asked you to take some deep breaths because we need to state our views with calm, clear-headed reason. Here comes the big question. What do you oppose in the current political reality, in our world, today? Better yet, what do you fear from that current situation? Can you express that without anger, provocative or disrespectful language, or a threat of violence? Remember that we are addressing a world that feels just as threatened and fearful as we do.
