Here are the options:
1. Focus on what is going wrong, staying wrong, and has been wrong in the past, and what will surely be wrong in the future. (Not forgetting that “wrong” is relative.)
2. Focus on what is going right, staying right, has been right in the past, and will surely be right in the future. (Not forgetting that “right” is relative.)
Results of choosing #1: UGH, GRRR, Blergh, Pffft…, eff this, I suck, you suck, we all suck, the end. (In other words, stay stuck.)
Results of choosing #2: I will survive, I’m like a bird, hear me roar, stayin’ alive, baby I’m a firework, I’m a survivor and I’m gonna make it… (In other words, get shit done and move forward.)
Also. Guess what? I’ll be running a collaborative workspace for creatives/artists/writers and the like…in New London, the art mecca of West Central Minnesota. It’s downtown, in a great building with lots of space. I’m going to collect a really amazing group of thinkers and movers and shakers and we’re going to help each other grow dreams and stuff. While drinking a lot of coffee.
There will be workshops and classes and artists and painting and writing and teaching and learning and inspiring.
That’s right. This is so “right”.
(I can’t wait for the story nights. In which we pull people from the community, ask them questions and write their stories and then bring people together to hear the story read aloud.)
Pictures and updates to come. I have some “before” photos of the building, but no time to upload them. Soon, friends. Soon…
Now, we need a name! Something that defines collaboration, community, creatives, creation, artists, art, stories…you know, that sort of thing. Wanna help?
The _____(your idea here)______________ ; a collaborative space for creatives.
(I love a good play on words, or just something simple and memorable, or even a bit quirky…since I am.)
Ready, set, go! (If you don’t like leaving comments, feel free to contact me via Facebook, email (email@example.com) or carrier pigeon.
