Creativity Challenge Day 40

Creativity Challenge 40

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

 Finish

To complete a task, or any endeavor. Crossing the finish line. Putting the finishing touches on something. This will be the last of the daily prompts. I have to get ready to resume teaching a class online. And I want to thank all of you who have participated. I can only hope that it helped you to see how your art, and your creativity, can be healing in times of stress and upheaval. And how reaching out to others is the greatest gift we have to offer our world, while finding our own sense of balance.  I wish you well in all of your adventures. There is both relief and sadness in finishing the task, and you may express that in any form you wish.

    Thank you, my friend, for devoting 40 days to guiding us through the sticky waters and out the other side. I am looking forward to turning the page on 2016, and to resuming our hero’s journey, for if ever women heroes were needed, it is now.

      Thank you, Sherry, for your faithfulness. I just ordered Elizabeth Warren’s book. She’s one of my heroes. Maybe I’ll share some quotes when we resume class. I learned a great deal from this experience and need some time to just breathe and think about it.
