Fabulous February

I am so enjoying the creativity generated by my OCA Creative Arts Degree that I don’t have a lot of spare time. My time has also been reduced  because I have a small job, managing 2 friends holiday Villas in the next village .

I have been reading The Divine Feminine Fire by Teri Degler. She examines the power of the creative drive throughout history, by describing the lives of some of the people changed by this mysterious power.  One  example describes Hildegard von Bingen, a 12 century nun, who at the age of 40 had a massive outpouring of creativity in music, illustrations, literature,  poetry, as well as writing scientific and medical literature. Teri  places her spot-light on some of the world’s greatest composers, also at people like  Carl Jung, as well as some of the world’s more famous mystics and saints. At the end of each chapter there are exercises for deepening your own creativity. Powerful reading.

Another neglected area of life, is my dose of Andrea Schroder at ABC creativity. With amazing synchronicity,  she emailed me a link to her latest creative visualisation video on Youtube, she shows us other ways to tap into our creative drive.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgQjW4v9tyk.

One slow evening last week I knitted a pretty little daffodil in preparation for St David’s Day. It reminds me of Wales where I have spent much of my early life and where the daffodil is symbolic of this celebrated day on March 1st.  Later that week I knitted the Arum Lily.    See  http://naturalsuburbia.blogspot.com/2010/08/daffodil-flower-knitting-pattern.html
