Creativity and The Creator

Happy Hump Day, All!

This morning is very special, not for any particular reason other than my senses are alive and well. Last night on the way back from the gym, I noticed the waning moon hanging oh so comfortably in the sky just over the complex where I live. It just made me realize how creative The Creator is! I am glad that I could enjoy it after working oh so gently on myself.

Now, to follow up last evening after getting inside my flat and making my favorite dish after a workout of wheat linguine and tofu mixed with veggies, butter and soy sauce, covered with parmesan cheese with a side of green tea, I received a call from a former student and present professional, Ms. Elecia James. It was a three way call that she had invited me on to meet the producer of a blog radio program called Back Door Productions/ 3rd Eye Open, Mr. Jerome Tucker. I am so grateful that Ms. James remembered me from an informal meeting back in White Plains, NY when I worked as a substitute teacher and shared some words of encouragement with her. All grown up now, former teacher, assistant principal just to name a few roles, and now public relations specialist for Mr. Tucker’s Back Door Productions, she introduced me to her “boss”, so to speak! I look forward to working with them in the coming year.

As I prepare to make my path ahead this coming year to complete my third manuscript, I scurry to keep the creative juices alive and well within this vessel called my body, with the leadership of my mind and the spirit of my heart … This, too, is a gift from Our Creator, whom I choose to call God today.

“No matter how old you get, if you can keep the desire to be creative, you’re keeping the man-child alive.” – John Cassavetes

As I approach this day, I will have an attitude of creativity that will nurture the wondering child within me. (TOUCHSTONES December 14th)

Peace be with each of you!

John I. Cook, Director
