2022 Creativity Project – Feb. 16

CREATIVE RETREAT

We cannot control everything. Sometimes it is even impossible to manage the meat-space behind our eyes. There is so much of our brainpower we do not use according to science, but maybe it only comes online in the odd moment to suggest and fixate on things obscure. They are not entirely sure, so how should we be?

We creatives can do this; we can ditch procrastination and show up to work or play, as we may see it.

Since devices distract, we can take them off-line and turn them off. Analog is refreshing at times. A blank canvas or page has charm unmatched by screens. If we need references, books of the material variety are always workable.

Sitting with the quiet, allowing ourselves to think deeply, opens the opportunity for images and words to present themselves without vying for attention in our minds, making it easier to bring them to life.

Calls, social media, texts will wait for us. Life may move, but it is exceedingly likely nothing ground-shattering will happen during the space of a creative session.

Getting busy creating and minimizing distractions while making or writing something may lead to breakthroughs of startling proportion.

If we needed screens to be productive creatively, the old masters and former generations would never have achieved all the wonders that presaged our civilization.

Check out to dig in and do something marvelous!
