Happy Friday everyone, I hope it’s been a good week!
Today, I felt like doing a creative dumping ground since it’s been awhile, and I’m in the mood to do some fun creative things 😄
Before we get started, I wanted to update you on some new things going on with my Instagram page for my blog! After having someone look it over and give me some advice on new things to try with it, I’ve decided to start posting some of my poetry on there. It’s going to be the shorter pieces, some of them will be newer poems, and some of them will be poems that I posted on Prose a few years ago.
While I was doing that though, I found a poem that I wrote for a challenge from when I first started posting on Prose. The poem is from June 28, 2016 and the challenge was:
“Hi! I am your Ghost! Past, present and future! But, you get to pick your travel! Write about your journey and where I will take you! Pick one, either past, present or future, or combine them!50 word minimum, 300 words maximum. I see possibilities of lots of visions here! Prefer poetry, but whatever you are comfortable with! Be creative! I did one too! And don’t forget to tag me!”
It’s titled, “My Inner Child”.
Yesterday, Nick and I watched the movie 9, an animated film set in a post-apocalyptic world after machines and technology started fighting against humanity. The machines have wiped out humanity, but the machines have also become mostly dormant. The only somewhat living creatures are little dolls made out of canvas material, and we learn their deeper purpose and creation throughout the film. It came out in 2009, and was directed by Shane Acker, with Tim Burton being one of the producers for the film. This sparks the question of “Just because we can make it, does that mean we should?” Which lead to me creating the picture on the left (not my finest work, but it felt good to kind of get the idea out of my head and onto SOMETHING).
Something else that I watched this week is the Netflix documentary series, The Family. The Family follows a religious “network” (I guess that’s the best way to describe it since they don’t consider themselves an organization) which has also been known as The Fellowship. There are a lot of world leaders, especially United States government officials, who have been linked to the Family. The documentary made me think about a lot of things, and lead to further questions… but I definitely recommend watching it. At some point in the near future, I want to write a post talking about my reaction the series, and further research I did after watching the documentary, since as of right now what I’ve found are a lot more reviews of the documentary more so than discussion about the topic.
That’s about all I have for this week folks! Thank you for reading, and I will see you next week with a new post!
Have a great weekend y’all! ✌
