Ponderings


  • The realm of the soul is the realm of dreams, of creativity, of emotion, and the true spark of life in every life.
    Christine Torres


    Dreams show us how to find a meaning in our lives, how to fulfill our own destiny, how to realize the greater potential of life within us.
    Marie Louise von Franz


    We should not pretend to understand the world only by the intellect. The judgement of the intellect is only part of the truth.
    Carl Jung


    Those who do not know how to weep with their whole heart don't know how to laugh either.
    Golda Meir

Weary Hag, I beg to differ. Your blog is FULL of creative spark. :) Thanks for the good word, David. I will try to keep nurturing those little sparks and just keep going/doing. I think Einstein said something about the creative spark, didn't he? I'll have to look that up.

I'm not sure I'd recognize a creative burst if it jumped up and bit me on the nose, but at times and usually in retrospect ~ because I keep the lines open and continue to plug away ~ I notice a spark or two has crept in sometime during the writing process. This thrills me to bits.
As David said, the key is to "keep doing." Excellent advice.
I've enjoyed what bits and pieces of your writings I've had time to visit up to now and fully intend to come back for more.
I was drawn here via Lyvvie's Limelight. Glad she pointed out the way!

Writing, painting, composing (or even just remodeling the house)--whatever "creative" endeavor I attempt sometimes takes the road you describe. At other times, long thought and preparation are prelude to a "creative burst," and in still others, it's a "slog it through" piece of hard work that–just–gets a twinkle, a spark of creativity along the line.

I think the key is to keep _doing_. Nurture those lil sparks. Sometimes they do need to be tucked away and fed lil tidbits of our soul for a while in order to become a flicker, then a flame. I don't get raging fires of creativity. just not me. Lil candles, sometimes. That's fine, as long as I don't quench those lil sparks-flickers-flames and keep on... burning.
