Happy Creativity Thursday!
When I need creative inspiration, I turn to the many creative women and men that I admire. Two weeks ago, I needed some creative inspiration so I visited author and activist Alice Walker’s web site. Walker has been one of my favorite authors since I started reading her work in the early 1990s. I adore her books. In Search of Our Mothers’ Gardens, Warrior Marks, Overcoming Speechlessness, Anything We Love cCn Be Saved, Sent by Earth, Possessing the Secret of Joy, and The Color Purple are some of my favorites.
While visiting her web site, I read her March blog post about Director Pratibha Parmar’s newest film, Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth. My excitement led me to YouTube. Guess what I found? The entire film. I watched it and gained so much insight into her early life, deep connection to nature, marriage, life as a mother, literary achievements, meditation practice, and activist work. It was medicine for my creative heart and soul.
Who do you admire in the creative world?
