Welcome to creativity week!! As we get started, let’s pause to recognize the most creative of relationships:
“Co-creation” by January Handl
My children birthed me
Many times through our time together,
We have labored over
Our interlocked destinies
We have adventured as “family”
Fought as friends do, with
Our least selves held in honor
At some core level
While our higher selves
Offered bridges of joy
And reflections of gratitude
Side-splitting times of laughter
And connected times of sorrow
They have offered me opportunity
To parent myself again
As I witnessed my wounds and worries,
Flaws and failings
Through the interchange of our love
And deeply realized my strengths and offerings,
Gifts and passions
Through the memories we have
made with each other
After 50 plus years on the planet,
I am more deeply realized,
knowing more surely the most hidden parts of
The most vulnerable aspects of human life
The greatest possibilities of being-ness-
Through this one role:
It is the richest vein of learning
The single most channel of wealth
I have experienced:
Through the tunnel, river, canyon, ocean, sky
Tamara finds creativity “through the looking glass” and with her marvelous eye capable of seeing more than I ever would. January celebrates the opportunity and pure creativity we have in our core relationships. Creativity is always a magical offering, waiting quietly in our day to day meanderings ready to offer something new and different to transform the moment.
CREATIVITY – The ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.
How will you use the magic this week?
Tamara and January are here each Monday to help set the mood for the week!
