Here it is a year later. What excuse is there except that life sometimes has a way of getting in the way. For me it was health–again. I now seem to have solved most of my Gordion Knot by cutting through to the fact I am food sensitive to far more than just gluten and salicylates. It truly has been a journey of unexpected discovery since it seems I am also amine, tannin and oxalate sensitive. I am still in process, but now better enough where I am taking up painting and soon plan to get back into ceramic sculpture and poetry again.
Likely I will write about food sensitivities here too of course, but the creative arts for me are essential food for the soul. This is why I feel my project here with this blog, Eos: The Creative Context is important–it feeds the soul by creating interconnections that helps spin into making our world richer and more meaningful–at least for those of us who read it. This is after all in part what makes us human: we are social animals with a spiritual/creative connection that resides deep in our subconscious. We need merely to ask and it comes to the fore–that deep mind that knows so much more than our paltry egoic selves, that deep mind that comes to us in a moment of creative spark which fortunately can be shared, honored and playfully or seriously asserted.
So for me, making those connections through this blog is an honor: while still honoring my own creativity, I also dance with the creativity of my readers and contributors.
Expect more: it is about to happen.
