The Celebration of our Gifts

“Writing is utter solitude, the descent into the cold abyss of oneself.” Franz Kafka

I almost shivered when I came across this quote about writing. "The cold abyss of oneself"...

For me writing and art and music...the three gifts I have been graced with, are not about me, but about the celebration of the Father who chose them for me. It is only through him that I can find my path through my work, be it writing, playing music or painting. Creating is for this artist, a powerful charge of the Holy Spirit within me coming out in words by mouth or through my hands on my guitar, piano or with my paint brushes or palette knives. The words 'solitude, cold abyss, oneself' are totally foreign to me. The moving of the powerful Holy Spirit is everything to me.

A Celebration of Love... ARISING not descending.

How do you feel when you use your gifts?
