Day 17, 18, 19 – Tuesday, April 5th thru Thursday, April 7th
We sing to you, Mighty Zeus,
At your touch, the pillars of our temple crumble.
You cleave the forests in two and shatter the black thundering skies.
Our every action is weighed upon Themis’ golden scales.
Our every desire—
whether we were blinded by ambition,
or moved to pity,
Every thought-grain is measured.
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.
