Word of the month for March:
Because I’m not an artist – at least, not a visual one.
Why do it, then?
- It can be fun.
- It reaches another part of the brain
- Hey, ya never know. Maybe you are a visual artist of sorts.
We all have our “gifts” – you know, the interests and abilities that come to us easily, almost as if the universe is calling us to them.
For some of us, we see our purpose in the gifts that seem to have been there from birth. These mysterious talents (“I don’t know, I just started playing piano at age three and my parents couldn’t keep me away from it”) define us almost from the get-go. And well they should, in many cases.
But – what if we’ve let this definition of “who we are” cage us in too much? What can we gain if we just try some other things, letting go of having to be “good at it”? What if we open the door to another room and just live there for awhile and see what happens?
My word for March is “Art” because I want to see and feel what happens in the room.
