111 Day Artistic Spirit Pledge: Spiritual Growth Through Creative Expression
Day 56: Seanna’s Waves
The memory of the damp, dreary dungeon faded with each kiss of the breeze across her cheek. She imagined this day so many times. The vision seared into her brain from the books her mother showed her every night before bed.
Two years closed within a chamber intended to deprive her of strength, confidence, and sanity meant Seanna must rely on her imagination to survive. She refused to relent. If anything, she became stronger, more confident, and found ways to calm her fears in the midst of loneliness and manipulation.
The memory stung only briefly for she would not allow it power over her. She’d won her freedom, but the cost will very soon reveal its worth.
**I am an Artistic Spirit! For most of my life I’ve used the creative arts as a source of spiritual exploration and healing, even though I didn’t always do so consciously. Sometimes I was the instrument creating the art and other times I was on the receiving end. The connection between art and spirituality is so significant in my life that it’s infused into everything I do. I love music, theatre, television drama series (daytime and primetime), and creative writing and find fulfillment in artistic expression of various sorts: singing, acting, and jewelry design. Throughout the next 55 days, I’ll delve into how all of the above strengthens my spirit and has saved my life on more than one occasion.**
