Creative Edge…

Lori Andrus in Sedona“If we are going to learn to soar, we have to know ourselves as well as we know our craft.”
– Dewitt Jones

I just love this quote!  And this past week I took some time to do just that.  I traveled to sunny Arizona where I stepped off the beaten path to not only explore the Arizona landscape, but explore my own landscape.

It was wonderful…

I hiked, paused to watch the sunset, spent time with old friends, made new friends, and even took time to sit upon a red rock and enjoy the scenery while playing my flute for hours.

For me, sacred escapes such as this are essential to recharging my creative spirit…the deeper I know me…the further I am able to push my creative boundaries.

Each of us has a creative edge to push regardless of whether or not we acknowledge ourselves as creative.

“If creativity is falling in love with the world, then in every act I have the potential for doing something creative, my life can be my art. ”  -Dewitt Jones Lori & Amethyst

I invite you to take a moment today and “fall in love with the world.”

Shine Brightly!
