November Blog Challenge! Theme: “Flight”

As promised in my previous post, here is the first creative blog challenge! The theme for November is “Flight”. What do you think of when you hear this word? It’s a powerful symbol, and immediately conjures up a multitude of images and feelings for me. We each have our own unique experience with this theme in our lives… somewhere in our journey of life there are dark times, painful and difficult places we must take flight out of. Somewhere else there are the things we take flight away from. And then there are the things in our story that hold our hearts… the things we spread ourselves wide open for and take flight into with boldness and passion. Flight is open, limitless, perpetual.

I’m excited to see what the results on this first challenge… and I’m deciding to ignore the voice that says “what if NO ONE participates” – because, oh, its there. But I’m not listening! You’ve got a whole stinkin’ month to make something – so no excuses! Time to take flight!… paint, draw, sculpt, write, photograph and collage your heart out! And when you’re all done, please please email me at sarahtreanor[at]icloud[dot]com with an image (or text if it’s a poem or essay) and a short description of your project and I will post it up on the blog the first week of December. (If you feature it on your own blog too I’m happy to throw in a link to that, just make sure you include it!)

Have fun!

  2. The image that came to my mind was the words that surround the beginning of flight, eg, “ignition!” “take off!” and the exhilaration that surround that moment. In a dream that moment when you realize that you can rise up is the most wonderful part.

    So I’m thinking of that moment that I prepare for. Whether I’m ready or not, it’s time to go. Flight is what happens after I plan as much as I can and then–go! I have all these ideas I want to work on, so many plans. But at some point, I have to press the button and see if it “flies.” I want my ideas to take flight, but until I attempt flight, I’ll never know if they work.

  3. Hi Sarah,

    I think I stopped by before but it seems so different. I’m guessing you’ve updated so much :) or I could just be confused from all of the fly girl blogs I’ve been visiting. It’s been a whirlwind but I had so much fun slowing down and cruising your blog/s today. I love how you incorporated your new logo. I’m excited to take on this challenge, so glad I have a month, I have a show coming up on the 16th and will get to it after that.
