So it’s occurred to me that my profile and posts so far have said very little about what I intend to do here.
I want to talk about creativity, but by creativity– I mean much of life. Life is a creative act. In the thoughts of RENT, “the opposite of war isn’t peace, it’s creation.” Most of life is war on our souls. (Take e e cummings famous quote “To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.”).
So I intend to talk about life. My life. And things I do. My life is the life of an almost-25-year old female. I am American. Christian. Politically moderate with an intense sense of justice. I am passionate. A singer, aspiring songwriter, and amateur actress. I’m a friend, a daughter, and a granddaughter. I’m a lover and a fighter.
You’ll hear me talk about my friends and people I meet. I know some really cool people. Musicians, actors, artists, cooks, creative minds. They’re not famous. Yet. But maybe you’ll hear about them hear first before they become more well-known. You’ll see me link to their blogs… or just introduce them. Or maybe introduce a really cool or inspiring product line I’ve come across.
I’ll talk about causes, but may avoid politics a bit. Not because I don’t have an opinion, but because I think most issues cannot be solved by changing laws (only changing hearts can do that). I’ll talk about food allergies because it’s something I live with every day. And it sparks a lot of creative living.
So that’s me. And this is my blog. Feel free to comment on either– or just leave a note to say you’ve been here. In rejoining the wonderful world of blogs, I’m looking for community, so please don’t leave me hanging.
