Creativity Challenge 12
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
The differences in things. Most things have a flip side, and even an under-belly. Those differences can add strength to the whole, encouraging new ways of understanding and broadening our learning scale. On the other hand, differences can be scary because they threaten our ‘comfort zone’. Take us outside of the norm we are used to being within. It takes courage to step outside of those established places we know and accept. But, if we truly want to grow, we must allow for some level of new information to enter our thoughts and feelings. That’s where diversity in ideas, concepts, skills and ability, as well as people, their cultures, and belief systems come into play. Fear of Other, stunts our growth. How has diversity enriched your life, experience, learning, understanding, and state of being? Does diversity frighten you, or do you see it as a strength? We absorb differences through all of our senses, seeing being only one of them.

Ha, did I leave my comment in the wrong place? I think I must have…………I finally managed to climb out of the gloom and write something positive. Thank you, Elizabeth. I think this election broke my heart.
I believe you are far from alone in feeling that way, Sherry…
