Razor's Edge for March 5th, 2010

Today's theme is TRUTH.

The thing about "truth" is that there is very little that can be said to be absolutely 100% true 100% of the time. I know there are those who would argue otherwise and I know there are those who can find things that are always "true." But an individual's truth is often relative. And the truth of a statement or an event or a look or an action depends on who experiences it and where and when.


Take a couple minutes to center yourself, breathe, relax. Closing your eyes is optional - only do it if it helps you enter the place where you are and be present with what you are about to create.

When you're ready, look at the set of prompts and let them guide you to your creation. As a suggestion, look at the painting, watch the music video (it is both sound and visual stimulus), and the read the word prompt.

Notice what bubbles up to the surface for you.

Then create: write, draw, dance, cook, plant a garden. Follow where your heart takes you.

the painting:

the music video:

Cynthia Hopkins,
of Gloria Deluxe.

the words:
Put two characters in a restricted space. One is content to be where they are because that character understands the importance of this meeting. The only negative thing is that there is no food and that character hasn't eaten since morning. The other character is anxious to go home, but can't do it without the first character's assistance, due to a physical limitation.

What is their relationship? Where are they and why? How do they resolve the conflict and both feel satisfied? Show me a story.
