Wyrd Island calling! (on creativity & community building)

Wyrd Island Earth - mani navasothy 24ap2017

A spider does not keep the same web for weeks! An otter does not build the one dam for ever.

Creative people are motivated by..nay.. driven by an instinct to create.. Other factors may play a part in that process – like whims, wants, needs, projections. But the deeper play is… that is who and what they are – creators.

They consume life’s experiences, thrive in emotional turmoils, observe the order and chaos around them and be moved by it, and get swept by social currents. At times they even seem to drown.

But then they find inspiration – the small log floating in all that torrents.. and they cling to it.. and fund another floating branch..and another.. Before you know it.. they’ve built a floating island around them.. It accrues width and depth..and settles down by the shores and banks.. safe harbour for others.

Sometimes the soul jumps.. back in the waters. Because it hears the call of new islands from the future.
