Welcome to lucy creates 2008!
“To create” has been defined as bringing something into existence or causing something to happen as a result of one’s actions. To be “creative” involves the imagination and/or original ideas. And, “ the creator” is a person or thing that brings something into existence.
There is a great quote by Carl Sagan that says, “If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe.” Well, “creating the universe” is a high standard to uphold, but I believe being original is fully within our grasp. So on this new and hopefully wonderful blog site dedicated to creativity, I will use the terms “create,” “creative” and “creator” quite loosely & broadly!
Here I hope to create space. To offer an invitation to witness something we may not have recognized before. To freeze moments of time. Clear a brief space out of a busy schedule. Use the imagination. Consider the possibilities.
I would pose that we are all creative. Creators made in the image of a magnificent Creator unique to each of us. We are co-creators. My distinctive life influences what I bring to the page or the easel or the kitchen, as does yours. So let us create—bring into existence new thoughts, words, deeds, and art (from our own unique perspective, of course). For the New Year of 2008, I am committing to at least be aware of the possibility of creation every day.
Pretty cool, huh? Dreaming dreams, playing with words, splashing a little paint here and there. Listening to the call of the great Creator. Will you choose to allow it to happen? Will you set aside your predefined notions of what being creative means? I am excited for this venture. I have broadened my scope and alleviated the pressure. I am simply creating space to be creative. Will you join me? Imagine the possibilities!
