Creative offerings

Several weeks ago a fellow blogger and I placed a trust in each other by linking  our words and music  together with Sonorous – (a post on Feb 23)

It was a gentle creative fit during a long cold late winter month.

Another blogger who enjoyed our collaboration suggested we do so again. We both agreed we would like that and soon afterwards I received a beautiful piece of music.

This was a piece that had been carefully taken care of by my new creative partner – 67painting.com for some time.

He bravely set his creation: his baby free . . .and placed him/ her trustingly into my hands. This was a privilege for me, as well as being something I had not done before.

Inspiration is a fickle thing, as we writers know and can sometimes go into hiding, so I cautioned that it may be days or weeks for me to find the voice the music so deserved.

I listened to the piece several times over a few days and started to sense how it made me feel. It is soft, peaceful and yet joyous too. I thought of small children and their glorious innocence that create smiles all around.

I recollected the first moments after the birth of my first born and it’s life changing energy.

And then- on a very long, hectic day that was choca bloc with activities, I was in a cafe for a sit down and a break and the words all flowed: and I was able to add another layer to the piece of art.

Here is the result of a creative collaboration on wordpress.
