Ok, going out on a limb here, but if you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space, right? We have 'Selfie Monday' and 'Poetry Friday'...there's this little voice whispering to me 'Wonder Wednesdays'. Mostly focusing on what inspires that delicious childlike sense of 'wonder' (awe, appreciation of beauty) in us. What makes you glad to be alive (besides just still being alive)?
We have so many excellent artists (and art of various kinds is a huge joy in my life) of various kinds here...i'm thinking this could be fun, beautiful and maybe even inspiring. i see amazing art here that according to ello have sometimes been seen by hundreds of people and yet often few comments and then very brief. While some folks enjoy 'talking to themselves' most humans like SOME feedback.
Post photos both of your art, or a favorite artist's work and photos AS art themselves welcome. Poems and prose of course. If i find some willing participants i will announce 'themes' for some of the Wednesdays...i'm thinking about once every 4-6 weeks will encourage humor---ask for posts about the other kind of wonder, i.e. 'What was he/she thinking? or 'What was I thinking'. Or how many people used a hairdryer in the shower, with the water ON before they put that warning on them? (Maybe it was just one fool with a litigious family?).
For this first one, i'd like to see/hear what your 'go to' (some people listen to music, some hike, some do their art) is when you're tired/frazzled/sad and need to 'recharge', what helps you regain your balance? How does that relate to wonder? The way i see it the things that 'recharge' and 'rebalance' us often have a bit of that childlike being here/now feeling to them--that's how they make us let go of the frazzles.
i'm tagging a dozen or so people, hope they'll tag others. Anyone who stumbles across this is welcome to join in...expand your ello circle, find some beauty and share it. Don't forget to at least tag me tag me in your contribution...
