I’m boosting my creative juices? During May, I am participating in David Suzuki’s 30 X 30 Nature Challenge: 30 Minutes in Nature over the next 30 days.
See my post: A Fun Challenge That Could Make You a Better Writer
Why will this boost my creative juices? “A growing chorus of scientists and researchers agree: time spent in nature makes us happier, healthier and less stressed. It increases creativity and lowers risk of heart attacks. It even makes us nicer, more empathetic humans, with more meaningful relationships and increased community involvement.”
May 4th: Universe of Magic, or Miracle
There are some things that unite humanity. One is the sun. We all see the same star that sustains all living things. the second is the night sky. Who doesn’t feel a sense of wonder while star gazing. Magically, our imagination goes into high gear. Lovers are injected with a potion of romance. Some of us can fathom eternity when grasping the wonder of the big bang. Others may feel small and at the mercy of forces beyond our understanding.
The next time you have an opportunity to look up into the night sky, stop and reflect. How did our blue planet survive the chaos and the violence? Do you see how amazing it is that we are even here? All the forces that created our planet in precisely the exact location, at the right time and composition – was it random? Or was it God’s command?
Who among us could write a more intense and exciting novel than the creation of the universe? Can you summon up more lethal evil characters than black holes, or more powerful protagonists like dark matter? The plot, beyond anything you can imagine? And the ending? Is there an ending? Magic or Miracle? Is this where my muse lives?
