I have a list to chose from what to blog about! Yes, the dreaded word-homework~
"Why are you passionate about_______________?"
My answer is being creative!
I compare being creative, to bees making honey. You see gorgeous Cherry Blossoms(Magic Sponge Box)- you get excited. YOU start gathering ideas. YOU describe your excitement, to your hive! They look at you like you are a Zombie! YOU have to make it, so people can see.
Your head is buzzing with ideas. What if I do this or that? You create it. Sometimes it comes out sweet. You wonder could this honey=money. Maybe your hive will get it, if you make money! You share it with your online hive-they get you~ They like it! You mail it to a magazine and hope the publishing hive gets it! It is a trade honey to money, but your honey may not be what they are looking for right now.

Sometimes, When I create, it is like facets of memories dancing. Think of a glorious blue day, with puffy clouds in the sky. The idea is the kite, it swirls, dips and taunts you. You try to keep the kite flying, before the idea disappears.
But really WHY? For me, it is about childhood memories. My Mom n' Dad were both creative. This allows me to be with my memories, dance and be young n' carefree. I can enJOY the process of playing with color, ideas, glue and anything that grabs my attention. Today the world is fast, creating gives me a chance to slow down, catch my breath and be reminded of the colorful palette life has to offer~
What are you passionate about? Is your kite floating or caught in a tree? We all get caught in trees, sometimes. Do your ideas dance and hum like Honey bees? Go catch them....
