In the course of pursuing my other passion – InnerPrinting, this week, I came across an amazing creative achievement by Nek Chand who created his ‘Rock Garden’ in Chandigarh, India.
This is one man’s life’s work, and what is astonishing is that he pursued this project with little or no external recognition, monetary or otherwise, for a period of more than 20 years. That is a pretty powerful creative urge. For a detailed history of how he built his rock and recycled material garden and sculptures , visit NekChand
We are all creators. We create the fabric of our lives every day with the power of our thoughts and emotions. In the same way an art work unfolds, our lives unfold from moment to moment before our very eyes.
The creative urge is so strong within, that even though many of us deny loud and long, that we have not a creative bone in our bodies, it will have an out somewhere! Or for others of us our lives become too busy, so we think we no longer have time for our creative interests.
A case in point is my daughter and her cup cakes, of the last post. As a young mum she no longer manages to find the time to paint – but her cup cakes were a work of art!
