Creativity Challenge Day 14

Creativity Challenge 14

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


Did that give you a bit of jolt? A hug is when one person wraps affectionate arms around another individual, an animal, or thing. I often end my emails with a word hug to my friends. Hugs are given to lend support, encouragement, affection, compassion, and yes, love. If you haven’t done it for a while, read what Sherry calls my “Mandate” above. Our world needs hugs. We can do that in so many ways, but especially with words and images. Your task for today is to give the world around you a hug. You can do that in whatever manner you choose. And just so you know, Hugs from Elizabeth to all of you.



Musical Inspiration:

We Are The World by Michael Jackson, Lionel Ritchie, and friends. They are so young, do you recognize them?

    Sigh, these are all so wonderful. The prompt started my day off with something positive, your poems made it even better and then came the news about Standing Rock and renewed my hope. When people stand up in great numbers, the forces that be have to listen. All in all, a great day! It is supposed to snow here tonight. I am praying tomorrow I will be snowed in, LOL.

      When enough people choose to stand together, the world at large, listens. That forces the hand of those who would do otherwise. Glad you are happy, so am I.
