It’s the beginning of a new week or the start of a new day. Or perhaps you’re stumbling on this at some other time. Well, it doesn’t matter when. It’s time to think about doing something creative.
What’s the weather like? Go on, look outside if you need to, I’ll wait.
- Is the sun blazing down?
- Is the rain hammering into the puddles it has already formed?
- Is the atmosphere as grey as the mood it has just put you in?
Well, that doesn’t matter either. What does matter is that you can use the inspiration of the outside to engage your creative thoughts.
What does the weather make you think of: warmth, heat, dryness, arid landscapes, global warming, rising sea levels, end of the world, drowning, depression, moods, angst. ? The list is endless.
Use the weather as a starting point to do something creative today. But don’t just see a shining sun and paint a shining vista. Turn things around, the weather is just the starting point. Let your imagination run and develop the theme.
Go forth and create that subverted weather image, wordscape or aural texture. Of course, you could just subvert this prompt and go and interpret what you see as close as you want… being creative always takes precedent.
