Quote Before Me this Week

“But if you have nothing at all to create, perhaps you create yourself.” –Carl Jung

People are born to create things. All things. Whether it’s something as mechanical and mathematically dependent as a space shuttle or something as colorful and texturally interesting as a Klimt painting, creations are always in our wheelhouse. And maybe that’s why this blog has gained my attention again. I had this powerful desire to create something.

It didn’t feel like the inspiration to paint something I saw or felt, and it didn’t feel like a story to write. It didn’t feel much like an invention or an LLC or melody. It is still an enigma, if I’m being honest. It’s not the clearest vision. It’s simply like a faint glow in the distance, and it’s calling me to move toward it, and each time I post here I feel like I’ve taken some steps in its direction and so I will keep coming back and keep posting the steps until it all begins to take shape.

I am a human meant for making things and so maybe I’m creating something here. Maybe something is being created in me. My hope is that it’s both.
