Natures red carpet.
"The wound has left an imprint....labour and discipline of creativity refines our blemished seeing, and gradually an unexpected gift comes to light.....nothing is said directly in creative work; it is obliquely suggested. Perhaps creative expression is a way of telling something indirectly that we could never tell out straight...."
Beauty, The Invisible Embrace.
Creativity is never linear is it? Come to think of it, neither is love. They both contain complicated riddles that act as cues to peak our curiosity, and to hook us into delving deeper into the world of human imperfection.
Life is full of surprises. Amazing how often we see reality through the lens of an illusion. Amazing how often we settle into an illusion convinced its reality only to be surprised by a confession.....a truth.
My leap of faith is wanting....... I wish sometimes it was simply a linear journey where the destination was at the end of a red carpet and the gift was sitting at the foot of an old maple.
Life is a riddle. So is creativity. So is love.
