|GROWING PEACE FOR 2016. Using a purple watercolor crayon and pencil, I began growing peace for 2016 through my drawing and painting. Peace is something I would love to CREATE for us all in 2016. (Art by Hallelujah Truth)|
REVERB15 (Day 17) Prompt: "One of my daughter’s favourite books is the American classic Harold and the Purple Crayon. If you haven't had the good fortune to come across it, it’s about a little lad called Harold, whose magical purple crayon enables him to create the world around him. Whenever I read it to her as a bedtime story, I spend the rest of the evening pondering what I would create if I had a magical purple crayon of my own. Imagine one such crayon would be bestowed upon you on New Year’s Eve 2015: what would you draw to ensure 2016 had everything you need?" --Kat McNally
As 2016 looms in front of me, I hunger for PEACE. Personal peace. Spousal peace. Familial peace. Peace in my local community of Decatur, Georgia. Peace expanding out to the entire state of Georgia, the southeast, and all of the United States of America. Can my purple crayon draw WORLD PEACE?
|PEACE IN PROGRESS. I wonder if we all began to imagine peace, sing peace, draw peace, and dance peace. If we could CREATE more of it in 2016? The act of creating is a valid and worthwhile act, enough in and of itself.|
A "Purple Crayon Blessing" for creativity in my life and that of everyone in 2016 is the word ENOUGH. What and who you are is ENOUGH. Therefore, what you CREATE is ENOUGH.
The very ACT of CREATING is ENOUGH.
What you CREATE does NOT need to meet any of the following outcomes:
BE GOOD. According to your or anyone's else sense of aesthetic, the work you create does not have to be named "worthy." It has merit because you made it, and you are ENOUGH.
BECOME A PRODUCT. Your ACT of CREATING something is something to be celebrated. I invite you to celebrate BEING PRESENT in your life with the dance of your bodyspirt. Please accept the permission to let CREATING BE CREATING. The ACT does not have to result into a product that you submit to a show or journal or sell.
BE COMPLETE. Your CREATIVE ACT does not need to be finished. EVER. What you make in the MOMENT is ENOUGH.
|PEACE IN PROGRESS.|
One hundred percent health
Meaningful work that brings an abundance of wealth
Getting paid to play
