The more of these letters I send, the more I feel they are benefiting me as much as anyone else. ๐Ÿ’› ๐Ÿ’œ Dear Friend, The world outside is reopening but I am still staying at home.  One of my big courgette plants was broken off at the stem this week.  Normally this would be sad […]

Make Something New 09 – darkness

This creative prompt is somewhat vague โ€“ darkness. It may sound difficult at first, but this vagueness gives you a lot of creative freedom. Sometimes we have freedoms that we donโ€™t even know we have. ๐Ÿ™‚ Darkness has many cultural and connotative meanings that can be explored or you could attempt it more literally with a low key (dark) image. Remember that visually, darkness is the only way that we are able to perceive light โ€“ the whole yin and yang of realities.

Make Something New 06 – home

This weekโ€™s creative prompt is โ€œhomeโ€. Home is something hugely relevant to us at the moment. As a result of the pandemic and the ensuing travel restrictions and lockdowns, most of us have spent more time at home in the last few months than is โ€œnormalโ€. What does home mean to you?
