Einstein once said: “The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further then the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has been before.”
Who am I to argue with Einstein?
In point of fact, I related to the Einstein quote so strongly when I first read it that I posted it to my Facebook page. Being brave is always a challenge for me and speaking up for myself, though now coming more easily, is still not easy and probably never will be.
Jacqueline Berl's quest for creative expression and the valid direction (of the moment, perhaps?) is another question I follow. I used to think that I was scatterbrained because I never settled on any one thing. It took me too long to accept that I'm not scatterbrained; I'm interested in everything and each thing I try is like a new adventure. The length of time it lasts isn't as important as the fact that I do it. My challenge is to settle down and tackle these interests.
The hole I dig for myself is making a list of all the things I would like to try in my own personal creative quest. The hole gets deeper as I fill it with more and more. Lately, it's been all about writing, but there is so much beyond just the writing.
Being true to my challenge to my writing self, I'll be here for at least three more weeks but along with that, I'm going to start getting that list out of my head and onto paper. Then my next challenge will be 30 days of physical creativity and like this writing challenge, it will all land here.
