Dear Creative Souls,
Thank you for hosting and organizing and contributing to an amazing event. Being able to travel to Port Hood Cape Breton last month to attend my first Creative Soul Weekend was a definite highlight for me.
I loved being greeted with hugs, wine, food, flowers and even a delightful welcome gift – personalized just for me!
You couldn’t have chosen a more perfect location. The sea breeze and hot sun complemented both the outdoor and indoor activities, and brought a lovely sense of closure to the end of the summer.
The views and vistas inspired conversation and creation. I loved being silly by the seashore.
Accommodating our different personalities and talents fostered an environment in which we were free to stray from the instructions. You know I hate being told what to do – even if that means accidentally painting something that looks like a big…you know…
We got to play scientist and play artist and play fashion designer. And then we learned that we actually are all those things. (Some of us more than others. Okay, okay. Everyone more than me. lol)
Contributing to a group endeavour – even one as inconsequential as a drawing – opened a window into the minds of other creatives. Solo projects are fun but magic happens when many minds come together to create.
Sometimes it’s easy to forget what is sparked when we experience something different and new. I appreciated the reminder and the gift of the art that lasted beyond the weekend.
You are the artists, the story tellers, the music makers, the pun slingers, the photo takers, and the joy bringers.
I can’t wait to see what we create together next year.
