Creativity is the power to connect the seemingly unconnected. We live in a society based on production, where we are indeed very productive, but we often forget to be creative. The people who are building the future, they need poets and artist to make sense of what the future actually is. And somewhere between the traffic, and fast-moving city life, many talented artists often fail to find the time to create something magical and everlasting.
One of the main reasons why we believe in offering a disconnect is that so that many artists can find the peace and quiet to reconnect with their inner self and let their imagination paint the canvas, with colors and poetry. The results of our efforts have truly been fascinating and extraordinary. We are extremely flattered to have been a small part of the creative journey of these wonderful artists.
We would like to share some of these beautiful creations that make us think of a simpler, quieter time. Here is a poem about being in the state of true presence, where all your senses are elevated by the sound of birds and fresh air, a moment where we don’t think about the past, or worry about the future, a moment where we are truly present.
“Sunlight filters through the canopy of leaves,picturing_poetry
Leaves crunch beneath soft feet,
Birds sing and gentle winds whistle,
And the trees sway in unison, as one,
And as they sway, the forest dances,
Pulsating with life
So I let nature speak
I close my eyes…
Till I can hum with the birds,
And dance with the trees,
And hear my heartbeat fall into sync with the movement of the winds through the branches
And I feel calm
I feel at home
I feel alive”

Sharing beautiful moments when art and beauty are born is always inspirational. We hope this short compilation inspires the artist within you to create.
