The original title of this site…
Sparkling creativity. Creativity that sparkles, flickers and spins around inside the cold grasp of a glassy flute. Glitz and glitter, shimmering, twinkling, reflecting bubbly sparks of light into your mesmerized eyes. Haunted, are you? Haunted by the dreams you see in your own reflection?
Drink, my friend. Drink! It’s champagne, after all, not wine. And fit for only special occasions–never the mundane. Drink it in. I’ll pour you a glass…
For “the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing but burn, burn, burn like fabulous roman, yellow candles exploding like spiders across the stars…” (Jack Kerouac)
And who are you? Or, more appropriately, whom do you wish to be?
Are you an ordinary, run-of-the-mill, average Joe (or Jill)? Or are you a fabulous, roman, yellow candle exploding like a spider across the (now upstaged) stars?
Can you dance like a “dingledodie,” or do you prefer to “sleep, perchance to dream”?
The choice, of course, is yours. The Joe/Jill option is safer than the exploding candle, but it will make you yawn and say (and do and experience) commonplace things. The latter choice is more exciting, vibrant, lively–and you’ll rarely feel depressed or defeated. BUT you will encounter criticism, even disdain, from the Joes and Jills who do not understand. It is a risk we creators take. And it isn’t easy.
Can you do it? Can you find the courage within yourself to be yourself–even when you are around other people?
