When I reflect on Summer Camp 2014, the general theme that stands out for me is COMMUNITY.
Whether you are painting, doing yoga, working or going to the movies…the energy of group work raises the vibration and magic moments naturally occur. My week spent with 8 young artists was full of Exploration, Inspiration and FUN!
The end result was alot of amazing ART, but that is not what I remember even hours after the final Art Show.
What I remember was the process, the JOURNEY.
Just like any creative project…IMAGINATION sparks an idea that STIRS the SOUL…
We seek out tools, canvas, paper, brushes and teachers to fill our tool box….CONFIDENCE is gathered to explore something new.
Set quickly into ACTION- otherwise known as PLAY MODE. Avoid thinking and start doing.
CONNECT, get involved, share with others, WONDER, get frustrated, cry, SMILE, Feel ELATED or deflated, scared or EXCITED. FEEL more. Move through, move on and WONDER what the next journey will bring…
In the end after the canvas has been long forgotten we remember EACH OTHER. The good times and the bad. Maybe we remember sticky fingers from the fruit bouquet or how we felt when our final project turned out better than we imagined.
Regardless, I will treasure this week for all the SMILES and HUGS I received and I will PAY them forward.
Bouquets of Gratitude,
