The Artistic Alchemy: Embracing Solitude for Creative Brilliance
Today, we delve into the profound theme of solitude and its indispensable role in nurturing and enriching your artistic practice. From painters to poets, musicians to writers, solitude has been a faithful companion to the creative process, fostering depth, authenticity, and innovation. My wife gave me a box of cards for the holidays in 2022. I was puzzled because they were creativity cards and I thought, what the heck is this, I don’t need them. Well, folks, I was wrong and I will attempt to do a card a week and record an episode about how I am utilizing the card I draw every week if you decide to pick up a deck and do these let me know.

The Kernal of Solitude
Solitude can be liberating because there is no need to control how you appear to others.
- Reflect on how being alone makes you feel. Apprehensive, inspired thrilled or something else?
- Alone or in a group, reflect on how and where you get your creative energy. Many of us get energized from noise, movement, and a constant buzz of activity. But often that energy is anxious, whereas the energy that comes from stillness, quiet, and solitude is more steadfast and absolute.
- Prioritize solitude now. What would you need to do to schedule fifteen minutes or even a few days of purposeful solitude? In what ways could solitude serve you?
