October is one of my favorite months because, in central NY, it holds and embraces my favorite season – autumn. With this excitement that I feel as we move into October, there are so many words that I would love to share… So many encouragements I would love to give. In keeping with a theme that my best friend and I both hold close to our hearts, it felt appropriate to encourage her (as well as all of you) to explore art and all of the possibility that this can mean.
“October officially means that it’s autumn… apples, falling leaves, pumpkins, and Halloween. One of my favorite things about Halloween was the creativity spent designing costumes. I loved the construction put into my own, and I also appreciated seeing others’ inventions. I’ve always seen it as a form of art. Last month, I invited you to foster your creativity. Now, I encourage you to take it one step further and explore art. Create it, view it, visit it, seek it out, find it in hidden places.”
SEPTEMBER - “……I invite you to take moments to foster your childlike creativity. Let it flourish. Let it inspire you.”
AUGUST - “…let yourself explore. Build community for yourself. Throughout this journey, give yourself permission to struggle.”
JULY - “…acknowledging and speaking our truths about where our world is still lacking in providing freedom to be our authentic selves can be incredibly valuable.”
JUNE - “As the Solstice nears, decide how you would like to honor the cycles of nature and welcome summer. Allow your mind to create any possibility. Then, take action. Truly celebrate.”
