I am looking for confluences this morning. Some magical firing of creative synapses that will say “take this and make it into this!” The second “this” being something interesting or witty or thoughtful to add to this blog.
I have been looking for confluences like a child looking for colored treasures on Easter morning – are they here in this book I’m reading? here in the photos I took yesterday? or here on the index cards scribbled with notes and ideas?
I am looking for confluences like the woman in the painting is looking for…Easter Eggs?!?
Apparently, some mischievous Photoshop artist took the liberty of adding Easter eggs to this hundred-year-old Waterhouse painting of the mythical Narcissus.
My first reaction was to chatter away about technology and authenticity (as I am known to do quite often these days).
And then I saw the uninhibited creativity. There are no shoulds or should nots here. No rights or wrongs. “I will take this and make it into this!” says the artist.
“I will take this and make it into this!” says the writer.
