Creativity Challenge Day 23

Creativity Challenge 23

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

Freedom

The ability to go where one wants to go, say what one wants to say, and live as one chooses to live, without tethers. Authorized by law. Without it, we are bound, caged. Wild creatures are free and, to some extent, we envy them that freedom. But, freedom also entails a certain level of responsibility. If we desire freedom, we must grant it to others. If we want to remain free, we must take on the responsibility to fight, advocate for that freedom. If we want the freedom to speak, then we must be responsible for the words we speak, how we use them, and we must not impinge on the freedom of others to do the same. Remember, we also have the freedom to remain silent.

    Good word, Elizabeth! Thank you for this series, and for our chat. It feels good to direct my thoughts into some sort of form.
