So, what happens when one loses one’s mojo? What is it to get one’s mojo back? I don’t know those answers, but my mojo is coming back online – full throttle.

It’s been a challenging year. This blog is about creativity, not about life’s knockdowns. But life’s problems affect creativity, and you do as much as you can do, and just keep putting one foot in front of the other.

But, there are times when my creativity is a train, rolling down a track, and it gets faster and faster, and operates and things work. Those are the times you live for, when you get sooo much done, in a variety of creative fields. The wellspring is full, and you output creativity and feel the joy.

Imagine the joy of creating something unique. At that moment–only you –out of all the people in the universe–are aware of what has just been given to the world. It’s like giving birth. It’s a moment of awe, of wonder, of unparalleled joy. I’ve talked with artists who paint something and stand back and look at the painting in wonder and say, “That came out of my hand!”

I love creating music; words; prose; song; video; poetry; photographs and anything else. Cooking is a great expression of creativity. Sewing, quilting, crochet. Auto-mechanics.

Whatever your metier, I wish for you all of life’s  joy.

On deck:

-work on the composing project – learn horn fills and instrumentation

-build the poetry book. Much of the work is already done: poems are written; cover is built. Just need to format and get it ready to go. I can’t WAIT until this is out there. Poetry is so subjective. Some will like it, some will hate it, most people will be indifferent. But it’s yet another way to express oneself.
