I feel you here.
I sense your soul in the quiet darkness
Of the slow. flow of le Rhône
As she wanders under your
Starry Night
Past the place of your
Yellow House.
I sense you too in the day light,
As the yellow sun arcs
Through the sky of broad, blue strokes.
I see the fields, littered with Ancient Rome,
In your colors
yellows, greens and blues
As if painted in windmilled paints
Bright and layered thick.
And the heavenward sunflowers turn their heads.
As if searching for you
Wanting to be immortalized on your canvas.
But you've been gone for ages
Your sadness took you away.

Adam's questions to ask yourself about creativity:

  1. What does creativity mean to you?
  2. What is your greatest fear around creating art and sharing it?
  3. How does your inner critic affect your creative process and where are you most sensitive to criticism?
  4. When did you realize you were creative and how was that nurtured or not nurtured?
  5. When and what areas are you most open to criticism as it pertains to your art?
