The REVERB 10 PROMPT for TODAY: Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What communities would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011?
Hallelujah for COMMUNITY! In 2010, I discovered The SPIRITUAL ART PILGRIM community through the manifestation of understanding myself and honoring WHO I AM. Adorned with my own self-knowledge, I was able to SEEK other ARTFUL SOULS. I have met JOYFUL CREATORS in my town of Decatur, Georgia, through art venues and schools, but most surprisingly, I have met virtual national and international pilgrims through my blog, Coffee With Hallelujah.
On my blog, Coffee with Hallelujah, which I began in 2009 but developed in 2010, I gleefully announce that ART matters! ART heals! ART informs! I share my WAY of SEEING artfully. I strive to be authentic and honest. I show my artwork and that of others that enlivens me. I invite other SOJOURNERS to share their JOURNEYS with me by SOUL BLOGGING.
In 2011, I would like to deepen connections with real and virtual SPIRITUAL ART PILGRIMS. What is my definition of a SPIRITUAL ART PILGRIM? She is a person who yearns to EXPRESS her SPIRIT in her own way. She begins first by looking inward, asking herself what she needs to be, say, or do—and voila!—she dances, hums, chops celery, opens the dictionary to find illuminating or seductive words, chooses colorful socks to wear—and yes, DRAWS, PAINTS, SCULPTs, and builds monuments to herself!
Very importantly, since BEING and DOING are the goals of this artful journey, the PILGRIM must allow herself to CREATE without judgment! Whatever YOU MAKE, HONOR it!
Share you journeys with me, Hallelujah Truth! I need you! We need each other! Hallelujah! Thank you REVERB 10 for giving me this time to reflect on community.
