Creativity Overload

Creativity Overload

I spent every spare minute last week poring over the video footage for the True Surrender music video. I was so involved I had trouble sleeping. I haven’t given this much concentrated time to a creative endeavor since … well, I can’t remember when. I’m on creativity overload. I’m exhausted and exhilarated at the same time.

When I first thought about doing this project, it was with a curiosity: how would my passion for singing, writing and the power of the visual come together?

I can see it now in the rough draft of the music video. And I’m in awe. I’m in awe of the process – how the different aspects have dovetailed and intertwined; how dormant creativity has been sparked (in large part by being around other creative people – I love the collaborative nature of this project). I’m surprised by myself. And I’m in awe of how the right people came into my life and into the project. People who bring me new awareness, teach me something new, share their story, or spark yet another creative idea.

AND I’m humbled by the realization that the right someone or something is brought into my path just when I need it. This is not the first time I’ve experienced that. Already I am wondering what experience is next … as long as I am open to it.
