The artist of life
listens for the shadow bounce
a flight of letters.
We absorb life in three ways: visually, auditorially and kinesthetically. The intuition gains access through all that passes near and through the senses. Everyone has a natural focus on one area that stimulates before the others.
I tend to hear and smell first. My eyes take over in response to those messages. Photography stores my visual cues for later. I search for musicality and discover the silences.
This shift of awareness into the other areas adds texture to writing. It assists receptivity and exercises the ability to nudge intuition.
It's a thrill to mix and match and taste the air.
Creative Write: Expand the potential of your authentic voice by spending time exercising the areas you do not normally access first. For a week write one day from sight, one from sound, another from body sensations. Incorporate all at the end of the week.
