Creativity Challenge 15
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
Each day, I go to the Dictionary, to make sure I am using each word correctly, even though I try to choose common ones. Today, after choosing the word together, I got a real surprise. I had always thought the word was somehow based in the phrase to gather. It isn’t. It is based on the word into: as in, into agreement, union, partnership, unity, relationship, etc. No, it doesn’t change its meaning, it just clarifies it. Gives it a deeper definition. We have been into this challenge for two weeks. And I must thank each of you for coming here, together. The task for today, is to express what you, as an individual are willing to get into, to gather with in our present world. Together we are stronger than alone. Celebrate that reality.
