Full circle

Hoa and I met in the washroom at a CAConrad workshop four or five years ago. When we opened the shop, she asked if there was anything special I wanted to see happen, and I said for my 58th birthday, I’d like to launch a new chapbook and read with CA. Here we are. KIRBY

Essential CA

CAConrad

It is essential, right now, at this very moment, to embrace your creativity, if you used to paint, if you used to write poems then write again or paint again, just do it, do it now, right now! When we are creative we are able to make better decisions, we are able to see more deeply the world around us and can therefore see what needs to be done to make life better, not just for ourselves but for everyone, ever person and every other living thing. The trappings of money and power are of course in the art world and with writers, but that can happen while the rest of us are dedicating ourselves to our skills, sharpening them every single day of our lives. What I have discovered in doing and teaching (Soma)tic rituals for over a decade now is that when people find themselves stuck, unable to write, paint, dance, these rituals build a bridge back to that vital part of themselves.
