Day 7 – Saturday, March 26th
Strands of time
stretch from one end of the horizon
to the other.
but to press them
between one’s fingertips
to make all the moments one.
From there the heart fills up
with the light of love
from the Sun and the Earth,
and even the Moon and her shadows.
The 100 Day Project is a creativity excavation. It’s about unearthing dormant or unrealized creativity by committing to a daily practice everyday for 100 days.
Creativity is a skill. The more we practice, the more skilled we become. Practice takes time. Practice takes commitment. Practice is a radical act in this speeded up world. Through practice, we develop a creative habit. Through habit, we reconnect with and know ourselves again as a creative being.
I started this, my fourth, 100 Day Project on March 20th, 2022. My project is to write at least one first-draft stanza inspired by a poem, a quote, an idea, a painting—anything (or nothing at all) and to post a photograph that I took this spring.
