Where Dreams Lie


It might be a lot redundant to have title the post the same as the text in this filtered photo. But, I can't help it. Will you take my apology because I will be posting some more of these types of pictures.

See, it all started with my dissatisfaction with my nonexistent editorial calendar. To gather inspiration on topics and or prompts I browsed fellow April Platform Challenger blogs. I hung out at Jo Ann J. A. Jordan's blog a bit, mesmerized by her incredibly cute handwritten journal entry. After I finished gawking at her penmanship, I looked through her other posts. Jo Ann, is working on a Creativity Project, where she makes something creative (paraphrasing the project, apologies) every day.

Now, I made an incredibly serious mental note to try something like this. Something like, starting a daily creative project. I left the note marinate in my imagination and started browsing pictures with captions. Somehow the idea morphed into photos. I've always wanted to try taking photos.

My brain decided to start a series of photos with captions that somehow create poems. The aim is to make these photos with lines of different poems every day. And that's where dreams lie comes from, a poem. It could be the title of the poem, the last line, the first line, but I'm not telling. It's going to be more fun that way.

If you were to create a daily creativity project, what would you do? Would you make it a habit of blogging about it everyday or keep it secret?

    As far as the daily creativity project goes, I would definitely want to follow along to your output.

    In my case, my closet desire, is to learn how to sing... Perhaps then I would fall into a daily singing rhythm. For now I write daily on my site.
