What does it mean to be a creator, to be a maker in the true sense?

“What does it mean to be a creator, to be a maker in the true sense?

First it means to align oneself: to hold oneself steady in the wind of life, and see where others merely notice or running, pass too fast to even notice.

Next it means to wake up. To be awake means to taste the flavor of things all the way to the pulsebeat and on into the heart of things…then further. “

“That’s how the light gets in” – Winter Solstice 2010


“Moon, Venus & Jupiter” Taos, New Mexico, c. 2009 Heidi Straube

December 21…Winter Solstice…When the sun shines the least, and the darkness is longest.

I intended to write an article today about darkness vs. light, rebirth and hope, new beginnings and prosperity — many of the themes of the rituals and celebrations associated with the Winter Solstice.

But in the refrain of his song poem, “Anthem” Leonard Cohen captures the essence.

Like any good art, it needs no interpretation or expansion.

Listen…in your heart…it is for you.

“Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in
That’s how the light gets in
That’s how the light gets in”

“We do not make photographs with our cameras. We make them with our minds, with our hearts, with our ideas.” – Arnold Newman
