Welcome to the first day of the A to Z challenge!
Today's topic is art. I consider myself an artist, not because I have immense talent, but because I love the process of creating and of using my imagination. I am an artist of the mind more than of paper or paint or clay.
I know amazing and talented artists (Kara DeCarlo) and photographers (Kym Davis). I know writers of great skill (Jennifer Wells) and sculptors. I know knitters and weavers, seamstresses and dancers. I even know a tarot reader who would knock your socks off. All of these are art. Art is simply an expression of the mind and the soul, a way to release thoughts, feelings, dreams, anything.
I do it with poetry a lot. I use words to take something inside me and let it free. Sometimes I knit, to soothe the soul and create something comforting to put into the world. Sometimes I paint, in a very abstract, play with color to see what happens kind of way.
How about you? How do you express yourself?
