In the spirit the power of refusal: what does my creativity denounce? What would it look like to trust that my creative spirit is an ever-abundant source?
So much poetry here. "The buds of the trees around my neighborhood are blooming like the slowest and sweetest fireworks." Thank you for sharing this message on creativity, it was one I needed to hear today!
ps: the GD truth in this 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 White supremacy as a culture means its values can infiltrate our behaviors, attitudes, and daily practices. Perfectionism, senses of urgency, and hyper-individuality are all behaviors of white supremacist culture. In creative practice, one of the ways white supremacy culture can appear is the belief that creativity is a scarce resource. Alongside this comes the idea that care should be sacrificed to maintain the production of output.
This is so beautiful and powerful and resonant. Thank you for planting a seed of possibility in me where it was needed. <3
