I have been traveling a fair amount for work and business. I am taking time to visit downtown shops and check out the street art…and also noticing the art in hotels.
Above are two shots from a recent trip. The art on the buildings was crazy!
I am discovering that my creativity is taking me in the direction of clarifying my business plans. The walks I take are great outlets to think, process and notice. However, I am finding that what I think of as “creative” continues to be re-defined.
Let me explain. I have been “creating” something each day in the form of a visual art project: drawing, painting, chalk, crayons… But I am seeing that I have a need to set some goals, write and plan more lately. Is this creative? Not in the way I normally think of it…but it is definitely creative! I am seeing that the “creativity” I bring into each and every day varies. Right now, I need to walk…think…and write. I have tried to draw a bit…but it just feels like that is taking away from where I want to place my creative energies.
Does it ever feel that way to you? What DOES creativity mean?
I continue to re-define my understanding. The next few months, I will walk, (maybe take photos) and write. I will plan and create new workshop ideas and ways to grow my own creative business.
