Day 108 of the Artistic Spirit Pledge

111 Day Artistic Spirit Pledge: Spiritual Growth Through Creative Expression

Day 108: Writing Without An Audience

Writing

Standing on stage with only a spotlight surrounding me

I walk towards the microphone down-stage center

The house remains dark

“Is anyone here?”

The internal dialogue does little to quiet

All the nerves and worry

I clear my throat, open the spiral bound notebook,

And read my first selection.

 

My voice echoes through the utter silence

Lilting and falling with the flow of the words

So much heart and passion

For the written work I now share

“Is anyone here?”

I wonder again

“Does it matter?”

The reply.

 

I feel the sensation of the light upon me

And the comforting darkness around me

I soften my tone and draw the piece to a close

Waiting a moment to show that I’m finished

“No one’s here,” I decide

“But the writing still matters.”

 

**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. For the next 3 days, I’ll delve into how all of the above strengthens my spirit and has saved my life on more than one occasion.**
