Bloom True Boot Camp: Week 2
Sat Sept 13
I so wish I had found the time to do this prompt. One of the things I would most like to nurture within myself and create within my community is connection with other creative people. The truth is I don't have anyone, not one person in my life who I feel really knows me and understands my creative passion and certainly not how deep it runs. I long to connect with others who feel the same and to collaborate with them to create not only art and nice things to look at but to use our gifts to inspire and help others to do the same.
So anyways... I really want to collaborate. I want to find like minded people and create something big. Something amazing that will make a difference. It's on my to do list and I plan to make it happen one day.
For now tho I will share this story....
A few weeks ago I and my boys spent a beautiful afternoon at my brother's Dan's house. I tought my sister-in-law Nat to crochet while painting with my gorgeous niece Lilly. The boys created amazing things with wood then we all made our own wood fired pizza for dinner. It was truly a wonderful creative collaboration with my family.
My niece was so thrilled with her paintings she took them to pre-school the next day and showed them to her friends. A few days ago I was asked if I'd consider coming in to the class room and teaching the other children some techniques. WOW! Just imagine the fun and inspiration I could share there! My mind is boggling big time!!!
This is just my little example of the ripple effect that can come from sharing our gifts with the world. I know that is what I am meant to do... my purpose in life if you like and I can feel the universe nudging me closer and throwing me little morsels of encouragement to build my confidence along the way. Just have to find the courage to do it now. I'll keep you posted on that one :)
Thanks Dan, Nat and Lilly. We'll have to do it again soon... those pizzas were divine :) xxx
