On a recent trip to Skye, inspired by the atmospheric landscape I started writing poetry.
Today, on National Poetry Day, I’ve decided to share my first poem.
Those who tell stories rule the world
– Hopi proverb
I have an ambition to make creativity part of my daily life. I’m in the first stages of a journey to make this a reality, aided by a willing guide.
The first step on this journey was to write a creative autobiography, answering questions about my ambitions, barriers, approaches, habits, and so much more. This was really helpful in getting me to think about where I am, where I want to be and how I can achieve this.
After summarising my thoughts, I drew up a kind of creativity manifesto. Last night I turned that into a poster so that I can easily refer back to it when I need a push:
What are your creative ambitions? And how will you achieve them?
