art experimentation over Christmas
- a pen (I like my rotring pen)
- a moleskine/good notebook
- a mobile internet connection tablet
- ideas (collect ideas)
- notation (take note of your ideas, your inspiration, your research and nuggets of wisdom you find along the way)
- good food/eating
- scissors - cut things out, that relate to the above (you can't beat doing things with your hands too!)
- asking (just try asking)
- using your gifts
These are powerful tools if used wisely, carefully, intelligently and with passion.
I have a desire to hold a mirror up to society, but also to find ways forward when things don't seem to work, or the prospects don't look good. But more and more I am finding that by starting; by getting the ball rolling in the direction you are interested in whether its through mere speech; an action; a diary of desires, the more attention paid the more things begin to manifest in the way of your thoughts or desires (aw, but I will say it again be careful what you wish for, or what you think!). Even following my own blog of a journey to where I am now (compared to where I was when I started) has been a thrilling ride through experiments, ideas, actions. There are many tools for us to use starting with our own minds through to social media, but I guess its our INTENTIONS, ETHICS & VALUES that count for a tonne of where we end up or wish to go.
Here's wishing you had (and continue to have) an AMAZING Christmas and festive period with a 2013 filled with magic, art, creativity and an abundance of wishes that come true in every way.
And a couple of links to things that are inspiring me (more to come):
Seth Godin's book: The Icarus Deception: How High Will You Fly?
And other inspiring free things on Seth's site here
I have more ideas brewing including art, you and the internet.... I'm working on polishing them, thinking them through, but I will share with you when I 'get there' ;)
