DAY 8 (January 13th, 2018)
THE LAST DAY
What is this? The last day?
On that day you’ll surely wonder—
What is this? The last hour?
And what is this? The last morning—
The last looking up
into a sky full of questions.
And what is this? The last tear shed
for a tiny, tremulous bird
that for flight an undying love
beats in its tiny breast.
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 third, 100 Day Project on January 6th. My project is to write at least one first-draft stanza inspired by a poem, a quote, an idea, a painting—anything really. I’ll post the results at www.bradseverance.com/category/100-day-project-number-three/
