Allowing the random to create inspiration…

I’ve been walking a lot lately & re seeing the joys of the street and her gifts…

What can we learn to create from our earth?

Traditional Ute Prayer (native North American)

Cosmos daisies... the whole world in a flower

Cosmos daisies… the whole world in a flower

Earth teach me stillness as the grasses are stilled with light.

Earth teach me suffering as old stones suffer with memory.

Earth teach me humility as blossoms are humbled with beginning.

Earth teach me caring as the mother who secures her young.

Earth teach me courage as the tree which stands all alone.

Earth teach me limitations as the ant which crawls on the ground.

Earth teach me freedom as the eagle which soars in the sky.

Earth teach me resignation as the leaves which die in the fall.

Earth teach me regeneration as the seed which rises in the spring.

Earth teach me to forget myself as melted snow forgets its life.

Earth teach me to remember kindness as dry fields weep with rain.

How to grow robust & sustainable creative businesses?

Well it’s a good question and not one that can be ironed out over a cuppa…

I understand how overwhelming it can be to look at making your business and your life more ‘green’ and/or sustainable – this has been a passion of mine ever since primary school and a workshop we took part in on packaging – see the slide with the After Eights boxes…

Open To Create… is my day to day expression in the world of being part of co-creating an inheritable world for many future generations of all species on this planet.

I trust you enjoy and find inspiration in the slides from my workshop “Giving Your Business The Green Light” run in partnership with University of East London as part of their Make It Global programme with The Centre of Excellence for Women’s Entrepreneurship

Playing with a creative challenge to re-wild my life during Sept 2013

Already loving the challenge of getting out daily for 30 minutes into the ‘wild’…

Day 1 of the challenge – supporting Tim Ridley lead his final art walk on Epsom & Ashtead Common, Epsom, Surrey http://artist-walks-epsom.blogspot.com/Image

Here’s 2 links to my rubbings made on a tree at the highest point of the common

For me this means into nature that surrounds me in the city of Ol’ London town.

The Re-wilding challenge comes from the awesome folk @ We Are Wilderness

Keep your eyes and ears peeled for some wild images coming from this blog in the next 28 days – gosh who knows what wild and mysterious creatures and features I will discover in my urban field trips…

More later…

I am off to look at the stars…
