Vada (in the foreground above) is 86 years young and usually set up and well underway while I'm still "composing" through my camera lens. This was a while ago, on the warmest of summer days. Just Friday we had the opposite problem, as we looked out onto a very grey Pensacola Bay and failed to see anything to paint about. We landed back down at the Marina and painted boats.
This second video was sent to me today, and has me appreciating the capabilities of a creative mind, the ability to make something where there was nothing, to find beauty, to imagine it, to arrange it, to amuse oneself in the process of problem solving. At age 9, my grandson Evan with a little keyboard know-how, is now a Songwriter! There are so many more songs and paintings to compose, provided we don't allow our minds to set confines but rather allow them to discover a stimulus for creating.
