Like a careful spider, Autumn is plotting and spinning it's crimson and rust-hued web. More satisfying dried leaf crunches, a colder and more favored climate, and finally less sweats. It's nice here, and It's a time for creativity and a push for something new.
Projects. Something I'm in the constant midst of. It's a revolving door of work, freelance, friend's wishes, and personal strides. So here I am, feeling inspired and wondering what I should aim for. A friend of mine, Angelina Sorokin who's a wonderful person and a fantastic artist released a poetry book a few months back which was beautiful and quirky. I read it all in one swoop and since then will pick it up and sift through carefully as I find more and more each time. Since then she's released yet another poetry book and this one is brimming with text. I can't wait to read it once it's arrived, but until then, I've been inspired.
Poetry is a method of expression that I love. It's a more complex way of expressing myself and it's very personal. I've always dabbled, but Angei has inspired my to write a poem a day for the month of November. I've already got a head start, but I know with busy weekends and other motives, I'll miss a day or two, and I'm okay with that. I'm not sure what the final product will be, and I'm not sure that I'll stop at a month.
We make out of the quarrel with others, rhetoric, but of the quarrel with ourselves, poetry.
– William Butler Yeats
Whatever the outcome, I'm writing and every book needs it's vessel, so I'm looking forward to the design aspect once it's compiled. There might be illustrations included? Perhaps pressed flowers, or a pop-up, confetti. It's boundless and that's finally exciting and inspiring. So I'm thankful for creative friends who can kick me in the seat to get back on the personal project spin again.
