One – What I’m Reading

living as one and loving it
by Victoria Alexander
was gifted to me by my Mum and Other-Dad for Christmas.

I love it when gifts give.

Many many me-a-ha-ing moments within Alexander’s caressing words and images.
Here’s just one
for tonight:

In the words of Picasso
‘I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.’

Creativity means taking risks,
is inventive and experimental.
Close your eyes, imagine.
See what you come up with.
You’re limited only by your imagination.
Imagination leads to inspiration.
So use what you have freely.
And make. To your heart’s desire.
Things with your hands, your head and moral choices.
They’re all creative acts because
they require risk and courage.
Visualise your actions, imagine the outcome and act.
When you’re done don’t listen to the judgements of others.
You only have an audience of one to please.
Living a creative life means losing the fear of being wrong.
Creativity brings about change, and to change is to mature,
to mature is to go on creating yourself endlessly.
