What artists and writers instinctively understand is how every source of inspiration is intimately rooted in love. ~ vincenzo

In today’s mad-rushed materialistic world, life can be a dreary desert lacking imagination and soulful reflection. Emotional upheaval or boredom can cloud and dominate the center core of their being. Friendships, media, school and even family life can form a dissonant chorus of cynical voices. Nevertheless, we  respond to motivational stories and the lessons they inspire.

We may or may not remember the name of that someone, the exact words of this or that chapter. What we remember, is the unforgettable effect it has upon our heart today. It is the seed well planted in spite of the adversity and disappointments.

In the hurry of daily living we can feel profoundly disconnected. And yet, despite many years of wanting, a creative cell can burst forth into new life. We begin discovering the joy of reading or perhaps artistic expression. It all starts with a spark of inspiration. What the artist/writer instinctively sense is how every source of inspiration is intimately connected with love.

Creative writing is learning to express yourself in the most unrehearsed way possible. ~ vincenzo ©

The beauty of creative writing is seen in its power to awaken imagination, emotion and pathos – facets normally kept in check. In it we discover a kinder, more noble world. We embrace its vitality even when real time may be insipid and cold. It is a time machine allowing the mind’s eye to visit distant lands in other eras. It is connecting with open hearts on a level rarely achieved in verbal interactions.

For some, blogs are an unmasking of the wounded self, where we attempt to calm and reconcile the aching, elusive inner world of conflict and emotions. It is also a day by day, week by week reconnection to the wonderment and awe of the ageless inner child. ~ vincenzo ©

“Being a low-maintenance child or partner (a nice word for self-neglect) is idealized as a valuable attribute.” – Charlotte Z. Cavatica

Many children who cannot rely upon their immediate environment to meet their needs, become as low-maintenance as possible. Some refer to this as an avoidant personality. Beneath their tough exterior, some develop exaggerated fears of letting others down and feel acutely responsible for others’ disappointment and anger. ~ vincenzo ©

Through classic literature we are at once in touch with authors of the past who transcend time with their literary wisdom and genius. Their love of life touches us to the core while reminding us of the brevity of life’s sojourn. ~ vincenzo ©
