Creativity Challenge 28
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
Something that represents something else. Written words are symbolic language for the way in which we speak. An image or picture that makes a different, or deeper meaning, statement about a concept or subject matter. I am not encouraging the use of derogatory language, but rather that of figurative language. Animal lore is full of symbolism. Who in the current scene, looks more like a vulture, an eagle, hawk, or a blue jay? Who speaks more like a crow, or swoops like a cardinal? And that’s just the birds. Symbolism enriches our portrait of what we see, hear, feel, and even taste. Use symbols to make comparisons today. Or use the word itself to express what is all around us.
