Day 16 – Monday, April 4th
So must one travel,
A trail upon the pebbles and sand,
Hidden in shadows of high, desolate cliffs,
The jagged rock eras old, wise and unforgiving,
Sparing not a single man’s life out of pity–
Pebbles and sand, and a gusty squall–
My cheeks flushed with salt and air,
My eyes blinded, far-seeing, pierce the far horizon
and plumb the piled fathoms
and all their deep mysteries.
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.
