111 Day Artistic Spirit Pledge: Spiritual Growth Through Creative Expression
Day 92: A Golden Menu
Day 89’s Creativity Prompt was as follows: This week’s theme…film and television.
Get inspired by your favorite film or television show. Write a fan fic story, make fan art, or create a necklace (as shown above). What will you come up with?
Prompt #13 added an extra dash of creativity to my award show party plans this weekend!
As I stated in the first entry of my entertainment blog, film/TV/theatre award shows are to me what play-off games are to sport fans. I watch the nomination announcements, invite friends over to watch the main event, and prepare food for the party; I create a menu that’s themed according to the nominees. For example, the image below shows a selection of snacks themed to celebrate the 72nd Golden Globes Awards – which aired Sunday, January 11, 2015.
I served white bean hummus (INTO THE WOODS), chicken salad and crackers (BIRDMAN), apple chips with dip (THE IMITATION GAME – if you’ve seen this incredible film, you’ll understand why I chose apples), along with orange-flavored, miniature-sized sodas (Orange is the New Black & Fargo – get it, mini-soda!)
My dear friends, Cate and Colin, hosted the party (of three) and even bought golden cookies and gold-colored plates for the festivities. I’m lucky that my friends always join in on the creativity year after year.
My mind’s already cooking up ideas for February 22nd!

Were you inspired by this week’s Creativity Prompt? If so, what did you create?
**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 19 days, I’ll delve into how all of the above strengthens my spirit and has saved my life on more than one occasion.**
