Creativity Challenge 17
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 power or capacity to do something on any level: physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. Its opposite is disability. This word came out of my reading a news article about the Texas Republican lawmakers who have cut the medicaid support to disabled children. I don’t know about you, but I am angry. Anger is a flow of energy that allows us to run, or choose to fight. This Challenge is about our ability to voice, to express, to speak into the distress of our world’s current reality. So, take a deep breath, maybe two or three, and express your insights about your own, or others, abilities or disabilities. What you have learned and come to know as truth from these experiences? How do you feel about what some view as a vulnerability? Do you find strength in what others might view as weakness?
