The Season for Creative People by Shana Jay

Could you imagine a world without music, poetry, art, photography & choreography (dance)? It would be a sad, dismal, mediocre place viewed in black & white instead of multifaceted color.  Music is like a smooth glass of wine it mellows me out and helps me to convey my words like lyrics to a song. If I had to choose whether to be deaf or blind I would choose to be blind because I couldn’t fathom a day without hearing the melodious sounds of Stevie Wonder’s version of “As” or Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata.”

Music connects with poetry that’s why it flows together so well.  Poetry is the outpouring of the heart and it expresses in words what music cannot.  When I write poetry it’s a form of release to me. It’s as if the ink is nourishment satisfying the needs of an unquenchable thirst the paper so blatantly holds. “Like the Song of Solomon his love is like a scripture to me. Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth; for thy love is better than wine this describes how in-depth my love is when I think of my brilliant mind.”

Art is eclectic so diverse and free when I think of all the colors of fall swirled into patterns mimicking the ripples of the ocean I get excited deep within. The oils and different textures mixed together by hand giving birth to a room that was plain and lifeless is exciting and liberating. Artwork gives a room warmth and substance. It helps creative minds to think clearer producing ideas that shoot like electric currents giving power to every fraction of the brain.

Photography captures every minuscule detail that the human eye would miss with just a click of a button.  Its been said that a picture is worth a thousand words but to capture a special moment never to be relived again is priceless.  A photo can depict any human emotion and can be compared to a time machine taking you back to the memories saved in the hard drive of the mind.  Photography is like a visual journal illustrating the memories of the past, present & future.

Choreography (dance) is by far the most creative and energetic aspect in the creative culture. To watch a ballet dancer perform with such style, elegance & grace is the epitome of artistic ability in my opinion. Choreography helps one to feel the passion in the music. It’s like sign language quietly illustrating a story being told.  It’s a beautifully crafted form of expression that everybody loves.

In conclusion, this season is the rise of the creative and highly talented era. If you have ideas step out the box and pursue your dreams the world is thirsty for artsy people such as yourself. If I can write a book of poetry based on my life experiences you can do whatever you put your mind to and succeed in it.
