Creativity Challenge 21
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 female of the species called Mankind, human, humankind. She who gives birth to the next generation and is expected to nurture that generation. Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, grandmothers and so on. Through most of History, seen as man’s helpmate. Explore the role of woman in the world at large. How does she fit in, or not. Then express your thoughts, feelings, ideas.
Note: Tomorrow, after noon, Sherry and I will be doing a chat about this Creativity Challenge and the role of the poet, writer, and artist in the face of upheaval and change. Please join us here: http://poetryblogroll.blogspot.com/
