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.
New Band: Pixie Dust playing the Street & Open Mic Circuit to Start
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!

“We gather together to play music and perform at resistance events. We use music, chanting, dancing, and performance to amplify the uproar made by the thousands of people enduring and witnessing injustices in our communities. We do this for the oppressed and voiceless, and for the betterment of all people. We create more than music, we create solidarity. We are Rise Up! Action Band.”

Started on an awesome environmental solutions and awareness gig at Surf Incubator in downtown Seattle, a short skate to Pioneer Square. Loving it!
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.
