Creativity Challenge 19
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
Artificial covering of real face, person, even feelings, or beliefs. Most of us wear masks at some point in our lives, using them to hide some aspects we prefer stay hidden, or not apparent. Although the current situation has given us divisions, in the past unseen and unknown, it has unmasked many faces that until now were kept away from public view. Perhaps that is a good thing, or bad? How do you feel about masks? Are they a protection, or simply a false face kept in place until time or circumstances alter the need to maintain them? What masks have you worn in the past? Do you still feel a need for them? What helped you remove them, if you have? Do you prefer to see the true face of another, or wish they’d keep the mask intact?
