In my blog dated 10/27/09, I mentioned that the month of November is dedicated to creative expression in its many forms at the Center for Spiritual Living http://www.cslsr.org . A regular contributor is Monty Monty http://www.montymontyart.com/goodies.html , a found-object composition artist (see heart art above). Each year I wait excitedly to see what marvelous creation he’ll pull together using the most unlikely pieces of unrelated material.
That’s sort of like community; a lot of unique and (seemingly)unrelated people come together to experience the whole as greater than the sum of its parts, and who know that when we gather, something wonderful is created which is dependent on each and every individual. Without one, the outcome would be a whole different 'piece of art'. I wish for you a good balance of individual and community expression that will enrich your life and the lives of those around you.
