How to do this?

A big question - how to do this?elsa - word, story, image idea music person
I know it can be done, but

I can do this,elsa - word, story, image idea music person
but it takes a lot of doing.

It's easiest in the morning. elsa - word, story, image idea music person
Everything seems possible then.


What do you see when
you see me, I wonder.elsa - word, story, image idea music person
I keep trying. I'm not sure
what will happen. But over
and over again, I keep
trying - because something
in me doesn't give up, not
forever anyway.

This year is not last year. Elsa's Creativity Blog explores:
the new landscape, accomplishments, plans. Elsa plans to do
better than the old testament god: he threw people out of his garden.

JUNE 23, 2007


I'm not in the same place, with my creative projects, as last year - the whole landscape is different. One could even say, there is a landscape now.

Last year: lots of projects, none on the web. No site, no structure, bits and pieces (and even huge amounts) stored in one place or another (on computers, in print-outs) but not out in the world.

This year: a site, with a number of stable sections. Words Music. Caro's Quest. The Idea Emporium. Dr Zee's LoveLine. My Chosen Home. And this creativity blog.

Each section has been designed. I might want to change some of the designs - but a design is in place.


More designing need to be done. Most, the areas left unattempted last December - those for more than me, those that would use Flash (animation) and also automation - those have been left aside.

And in fact it is taking on (re)learning Flash that is a current stumbling block. But it isn't last year. (As for automation, that is still fully unattempted - but it will be taken on by August.)


No, the site isn't reaching as many people as I would like it to. No, it doesn't yet have podcasting; it doesn't yet have sound inviting people in (orienting them about what there is on the site, where they might want to go, what is new). A lot of no's - things not yet done.

But there are also a lot of yeses.

So this year is not last year. I'm a lot further on. There is a landscape - and in fact there is some re-landscaping to be done, especially of the opening page, to pull people in more. Originally I put on everything I wanted on the site - great. Now maybe more clarity and order might help.


So, it's morning here, where I am writiing. A lot to be done in the various areas of what's in my life right now. And then, this evening, some time for this. Tomorrow, much more time for this - morning as well as evening, as I don't have great hopes for tonight - evenings I am more tired, more daunted.

Now, in the fresh of the morning, I am seeing the view, the overview, and what I see (like the old testament god after a few of his days of work) that a lot has been created.

And a thought flashes into my mind: in that story, we came last, and kind of messed up the rest of creation.

What is coming last here?

Interactivity. Input from other people. Myself not in an ark for my work - but with the works of many people.

It will be the hardest thing.

The old testament god ended up throwing humans out of his garden - they wouldn't follow his rules.

I want to learn something from that story - to keep some space to myself, and to set things up so that the interactivity is a benefit, a plus, with lots of good surprises and growth. So we can share part of this garden, and also that I can keep my private corner (I do believe that we each need a space for ourselves - just as I expect many of the people coming onto the creativity emporium will also have a private space for their own work only).


A few minutes away - and then another thought on that old testament god.

On the other hand, there's another thing to learn from that old story: that god's garden, like mine, won't be for everyone. As in his garden, there will be rules. However, the rule won't be in place to tempt people to break it (eat the apple and you're out) - but for the safety of those within it.

I teach. Rules count - or call them guidelines if you like, or parameters (I don't care about the word). Without some rules, there is no teaching, no class, no learning.

When I teach, I don't want to tempt students to break the rules, but rather to let them know that the rules add and may even create what's needed for good learning and discussion.

So, like the old testament god, there will be rules in the creativity garden - but I would like to tempt people to follow them, rather than to go against them.


And with that,

As always, welcome into my world.
