I am still not certain when my wrist brace is coming off. This has not stopped me from exploring my creative side, simply permitted a new avenue of exploration. While things are certainly easier to accomplish with two working hands, as well as wrists, this has given me an opportunity to explore avenues of creativity that I have allowed to fall by the wayside previously.
Recently I have been exploring crafts that can be created with forms of clay that do not require a kiln to create lasting pieces. Since the summer of 2020 reading program for New York State is “Imagine Your Story” focusing on mythology and fairy tales. I know that many programs are going to focus on the mainstream Greek and Roman mythology, with a bit of Norse (Thor and Loki via Marvelverse), and some Celtic or Wicca mythos thrown in. The Japanese have a remarkable mythological tradition, as do the Native American, and African peoples. I would love to be able to explore these traditions, it would be wonderful to have examples illustrated to patrons either through craft, storytelling (with some intellectual discourse), or a food tradition.
I am just bursting with ideas, as some of them come to fruition I will post the successes and failures here for everyone to learn from. Until then remember to Live Life a Little More Abstract!
