Creativity Challenge 16
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
Color often speaks in a language all its own. When we say, “I saw red,” we are making a strong statement of anger or rage. “I’m blue,” means I’m down, a bit shut off, cool to what is happening around me. Because I often find solace in playing with colors, I have created a personal set of symbols for them. For me, red speaks of passion and creative fire. Blue, of knowledge and wisdom. We all have colors that are our favorites, and some we wouldn’t touch, let alone wear. Today’s task is to speak in the language of colors. What do you see? How does it make you feel? What color best describes that reality?
