Creativity in Cascadia

How does Creativity work?

Creativity loves friends. My creativity is often heightened when I am with other creatives who I enjoy and vice-versa. And our talks and walks.

Creativity is simultaneously a relaxed & stimulated state, it’s energizing, it’s very in the moment. It gets stronger with practice & love. And it can either strike, often when out and about in Nature or just out or in or on the road, but it also can be summoned when desired for a work.

Creativity loves freshness & inspiration and meeting new people, spontaneous talks, design challenges. It likes the water, the shore, swimming, or out floating on the water.

My creativity likes it when I am up in trees looking out at the view, or upside down purposely like in a handstand– not from emotional overwhelm, although that can work. It likes heights, and new fresh concept & ideas, and beautiful works. Creativity needs expression, and it needs to grow.

Creativity also can be a double edged sword, and can turn on one and manifest in dark false imaginings, and I don’t have an answer about that, but just to be aware that there is a facet that can be destructive and awareness and solid belief in oneself is a counter that can be played & it might just be as simple as that awareness to stay on the good foot.

Creativity is good for the world, and everyone’s creativity is as unique as they are, and when it comes together it’s hell yeah!

Aesdiopod Designs is starting a new YouTube Channel about: This Freelance Creative’s journey to thrive in Cascadia, and about: A New Band “Pixie Dust” and their band adventure within a backdrop of Street Music, Activism/ Resistance and the Planet Health Movement.

Oh boyy, how exciting!

Public Life Philosophy

How much of your life do you want to share with virtually strangers “friends of friends”?

And another philosophical concept I will present here is “Retaliation”

That energy goes into the Universe. I mean, it can’t be that strong, but it’s just interesting…….

It’s been four hours since I posted this “poetry” a stretch I am sure into the network to relieve my soul…..

war or jealously (neither i want in me)

………………………………………………………………………………………………………maybe this is cheap but it brings laughter or release & sweet relief thru art my go to savior where I choose to direct this piss energy

Writing words, sharing them it’s dope. And noodling on the piano. Peace.

Seattle is amazing! Such an excellent place to be for a young professional/musician. Played music tonight with a great friend, and omg we sounded so good together, just singing our hearts out! Talked about playing out, we’ll just have to see where it goes, but in the meantime, I am thanking Santa and the Universe for my good fortune with my latest client, and it’s for the health of our Planet Home to heck yeah. Peace.

Creative Mornings & Practicing My Passion

What an awesome discovery in Seattle, Creative Mornings!

8:30 in the morning and awesome vibes! My first Creative Mornings and I felt like a kid at Great Adventure, well, that’s an exageration, but after all I am a creative. But totally fun and pretty exciting. This time it was a talk on “Fantesy” And it was at Cinerama which is a dope venue.

And also I have been practicing my passion, my PASSION!

Which is making cool art. And playing so much music. As I strive to find the right gig in Seattle, I have been busking it (drums and guitar in turns), almost every day to make sure I am not cutting into my savings, and it has been really awesome. I am getting so much better at music, which is my main passion.
