as far as creativity goes, i think it's safe to say that whether we fall or jump, we need to be out on that limb. sometimes dangling, sometimes draping our bodies over relaxing with a wonderful cup of _______ in hand.

or perhaps at the top of a waterfall, which is also the base of another waterfall. always on your toes, always adapting, and taking in everything around you - the beauty of it all and the potential of tragedy.

but that's where we grow the most, right?

time to figure out where my limb is.

as we grow older we become more aware of ourselves. whether it is at the forefront of our minds or not, every day we become more of who we are. which in turn makes us ask questions. where am i going? what am i doing right now? am i valued? do i offer value? what is my value? where do i belong? who am i.

as we grow and learn and ask we come to discover (often told by someone older and wiser) that we will be asking these questions our entire lives. everyday it is a challenge to first of all, be who you are, secondly, keep in mind what you want to be, and finally tie those together by finding balance in the waves that life brings us.

creativity comes in waves: the most important thing i've been told in the last 3, 4, maybe 5 months.

so. ask the questions. over and over and over again. find the balance. and do what you're supposed to do - what you, as a loving, living, soul are created to BE.
