Ch2 The Quest – The Creative You

Steve Parish Photography - Hasselblad HD-50

“Choice, challenge and change, ingredients of the creative process
that are best found when journeying well away from the familiar”.
Steve Parish – photographer, naturalist

Goals may change as the search for a path progresses –  indeed, goal posts may be moved by unforeseeable circumstances – but the exploration for purpose, relevance and happiness, involving self, others, lifestyle,  and creativity goes on and, fortunately, self-understanding evolves.

Dead-ends, side-roads and unexpected corners will test vision, imagination and patience to the limit.  Reflecting on the emotions released may expand the limits of personal expression. On the questing journey, change can appear to be a threat.  Fear may bite hard, especially when the change in direction is toward an unknown future.  There is always the possibility that the passage of time will reveal  that the thing most feared was the greatest contributor to the enhancement of our existence.  These difficult times will require determination and a strong desire to prevail.  Yet, all along the way we must remind ourselves to appreciate  the challenge of the quest as much as the pursuit of the outcome.

Above: When I wake up each day I see this spotted gum outside my bedroom window.  The tree may be lit by a filtered sun or perhaps shrouded in mist and the colours are muted.  Sometimes the bark is wet with rain, or peeling as the wet season sets in.  One thing this is for sure though, the scene is rarely ever the same and I am reminded that change in inevitable.
