Day #1: Writing Prompt “I create in my living room because…”
I create in my living room because resources are tight. Because its impossible to get studio time and no one works for free. I create in my living room because I love home. I love being home and I know it’s a safe place. I create in my living room because I can. Because there are no time limits on my creation. Because I can’t always plan in advance for that moment of inspiration. I create in my living room, because that’s where it started. Michael Jackson in the living room and “across the floors” into the couch. The floor board that still creeks in my parents home because I landed all my big jumps right at the bottom of the stairs. I dance in my living room because there’s space and frankly you don’t need much. I move from wall to wall and enjoy it all. I create in someone else’s living room, because the offer was too good to pass up. Because its new space to explore and a new place to dive into. It’s a place that means so much to the humans and non-humans that live here. It’s full of life and love and creation. The heart pulses strong in here. It invites and it inspires.
So, pull up a chair, grab a cushion and settle in. Curl up with tea and come along for the ride.
