The Mirror of Your Dreams

As I continue to teach a course on the Creative Process, compose music, write, work on video productions and direct I am reminded of The Neverending Story by Michael End. Not the movie, while the movie had some moments that I enjoy and it is very well created in it's own right, I mean the superior novel that was the basis for the movie. The novel takes the character on a journey of self discovery and self awareness. It's difficult, at times, to reflect on who we are and what we can accomplish. Also, as the future slowly becomes present we lose time by committing to our technological needs, our every day needs and the continuation of attempting to 'live in the moment.' While it may be difficult, it's important to remember that we live only one life and the moments are all we have. If you have never read this novel, I would recommend it. Also, take a moment to create something that is an expression of you. Creating without the distractions of what needs to be done, what has to be done or what should be done. Just to create with the whole Self.
