Happy Tuesday, friends. ☺
A couple of nights ago, my family and I took a walk out onto one of the local piers. As we neared the beacon at the end, I saw this graffiti and felt compelled to take a photo.
I don't know who penned these words, but I feel as though they were meant for me. They make me think about my own creative passion, writing, and remind me that if I'm not willing to take a risk—if I refuse to tackle that difficult subject or submit that poem or write about that thing that's been haunting me or try a different style of writing—then I can't expect to get far on my writing path. Creating is about being brave. It's about daring to take risks and daring to step out of our comfort zones.
I think this quote by community activist Mary Lou Cook says it all: "Creating is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun." (Emphasis mine.)
How about you? Do you dare to be creative?
Wishing you all an adventurous Tuesday. ☺
