Commitment and Creativity

“Commit to make something you love and you will find that the needed supplies come to hand…. Those who create for love–like the devotees who practice their spiritual tradition with ardor–give off a certain undefinable something that is attractive, and it attracts them their good.

“Faith moves mountains, and when we see art as an act of faith, then we begin to see that when we commit to our art, mountains may indeed be moved as a path becomes clear…. Art is a matter of commitment.”

– Julia Cameron, Walking in this World

Creative Energy

“Creative energy is energy. When we are writing about creating instead if actually creating, we are wasting our creative energy. When we are vacillating, we are letting air out of our tires. Our pickup is not speeding down the road and may never even get out of the driveway. Or project goes flat.” – Julia Cameron, Walking in this World

Box Full of Crayons

It’s been a while since I’ve written an English poem. These days, I almost always write poems in my native tongue, Ilocano. Since I’ll be a certified daddy real soon. (You see, my wife is scheduled to deliver our baby in a month’s time!)

So, I found the following poem from my first ever poetry blog. It’s about a baby boy holding crayons that brings colors to the world, my world!
