Creativity Challenge 22
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
To last, to continue, especially when the circumstances are most difficult. To bear those difficulties and go on. Ordinary people, doing ordinary things, during times of stress and upheaval. Standing firm even when provoked. To endure, also means to resist with patience. We want our world to endure, to continue, to last. Many see times of endurance as a sort of testing. As writers and artists, we are observers, taking notes. How do you endure? How do you see others doing the same? What tests of endurance have you observed in yourself, as well as others? Do you see our current circumstances as a time of testing, and if you do, what do you think is really being tested?
