the dark

Written by

When I give my creative spirit a space to grope in the dark, in the unfamiliar, my spirit is able to expand, breathe and grow.  All creation starts in the dark, and most of us grew up afraid of the dark.  But as creative beings, we must venture back to the dark.  We must carve out time to be quiet and listen to the whispering utterances of things that cannot be heard in the day to day noise we live in.

*This quote, pulled from an incredibly moving and inspiring interview with author and photographer Me Ra Koh, has been my north star the past few weeks.

    So true. But those quiet moments of epiphany and inspiration can occur in the most suprising moments, don't you think? Partly it is an openess of heart…
