Creative_Gone_Mad_Day_29_A_Return_to_Love_8302015 copy So, 30 days ago, I started this journey with no clue of where I was going or what it was going to lead up to. I still don’t know where it is leading—maybe this is the end or maybe it is the beginning. What I will say, is that I cannot remember feeling this deeply connected.  I must have been in college. This blogging exercise has truly showed me how scattered and disconnected I have become over the past few years. In reality, what I have learned is that I have wasted an enormous amount of time I will never get back. As Venus prepares to move and shuffle forward again, perhaps this all makes sense. A new meaning of ‘awakening.’ The pearl is being birthed from the tense irritation and internal discomfort felt on the soul level. I’m listening to Placido Domingo and Olga Borodina sing Samson and Delilah, and I realize it has been almost a year since I have listened to an opera. It has been even longer since I actually held the score in my hand, following each measure, eyes dancing with the gorgeous phrases and sensuous lines. I feel so alive, in this moment, so warm, and full of life. I can’t describe it any other way, but it is a sort of love. A love for life itself, which I believe is at the heart of every romantic. The romantic falls deeply in love with life, its mysteries, successes, failures, ups, and downs. It makes the romantic very misty and idealistic to experience these things. I have mentioned before, every artist is a romantic, and the artist’s love is an intangible love—a love it is continually chasing. Every step of our lives, we are seeking, hoping, wanting, and yearning for love. If ever you find a path, pursuit, or relation that allows you to explore the depths of your devotion as you pursue that love, remain steadfast and don’t turn away. Each day, as mysteries are unveiled on that journey, explore them. With each breath, allow even the faintest hint of that love to sink deeper and deeper into your heart until it fills you to the brim. And by grace, if ever you start to realize that love, in whatever form it comes, protect it, nurture it, grow it, and be brave enough to give love in return. Yours Truly, Creative Gone MAD

Last night, I had a bit of tribal connection going on with a group of my friends. At the moment, we are scattered all over the place, but we connected yesterday in a really beautiful and fantastic way despite the distance. As part of my experience last night, I even spent a bit of time sleeping under the moon. You’d be amazed to know how busy the world is when some of us are sleeping. But then at some point, there was stillness. And I realized the beauty of nature. One of the things I will start doing more of in the coming weeks (Read: starting next week) is getting back out in nature. I grew up in a very scenic natural environment where I was constantly wandering around, climbing trees, looking for stones, eating fresh fruit or pecans. It was just one of the most beautiful times of my life. Even though my family life was not perfect, we had so much to be grateful for. We still do, of course and I certainly do…but there was something fantastic about being surrounded by the lush beauty. This coming week, arrange some time to spend 10 or 20 minutes in nature. But don’t busy your mind or your body. Just try to feel the connection you have to everything living and bustling around you. Take this journey as a humble observer. As human beings, it is so easy to forget we are a part of nature and should be in concert, not in competition. What greater display of ambition, growth, evolution, and wild creativity than nature itself. You are connected to an endless source of energy and creativity that often defies explanation and reason. Such moments should leave you recharged, refreshed, and inspired about what is possible for your life. Yours Truly Creative Gone MAD

Creative_Gone_Mad_Day_27_Reclamation_8282015 copy This is a turning point in the journey. The level of connection I feel around me is so warm and sweet. I don’t have much to say. This summer, so far has been surprising one. Earlier this year, I wrote down exactly what I wanted this summer. Maybe I will share that list, one day. I set off the beginning of the year expecting one experience, midway through, I expected another. They were all off base, and not what I anticipated, or were they? But what it has been, what I feel right now, is exceptional. What a fantastic feeling. What an indescribable feeling—right now, in this moment. I have no idea how long it will last. But…it is such a glorious a peace that reaches far beyond my understanding…that’s a biblical reference, of course.   remember yourself reclaim yourself love yourself take care of yourself —take back your life.   For what its worth and whatever it means to you. Night Stars, shine bright. Yours Truly, Creative Gone MAD
