Artist and creative blogger Leah Piken Kolidas has rallied the creative community once again with her new challenge, Creative Every Day 2008. I got so much out of participating in her November Art Every Day challenge that I’ve decided to say yes to a whole new year of conscious creativity.
One of my big lessons from AEDM 07 was being reminded that creativity is so much more than artmaking. That we are creative in everything we do – from how we dress, how we live, how we work, how we relate to ourselves and others, and so much more. I like to think that, in the grandest sense, we are the artists of our own lives.
So, my creative act for today was spending quality time with my husband co-creating a shared vision for our relationship. We’ve been together for about 14 years, married for more than six. And through the years we’ve learned so much about ourselves and each other – we’re so different yet very much the same. I feel so fortunate to have him in my life and love that we are committing to consciously co-creating our shared vision together.
