As a part of the Create the impossible-project, we get a short audio in the morning 6 out of 7 days of the week. This week Michael Neill set off with a challenge to ”create something out of nothing” each day of the week. Yesterday, my creating was the necklace-hangers from the #cleanse4expansion-project that you can read about here: https://cleanse4expansion.wordpress.com
Not ”having created anything from nothing” today, except a few slides and tweaks to a class on quality and environmental management systems I’m holding Thursday, I got a wee bit stressed when evening rolled in, as I had choir practice for the first time this semester tonight. Luckily, that’s where it was. The creation. As a part of the last bit of warming up our voices, we were to no-no-no-sing in three tunes (Soprano, Second Soprano, Alto) to Twinkle twinkle little star. We did. A couple of times. And then, Jens, our choir leader, told us to break out into our own tunes, experimenting… and we did. I did.
And as I sang, simultaneously listening to the myriad of notes soaring out into space, while still clearly being Twinkle twinkle little star…. it came to me:
WOW, talk about creating something out of nothing!
And when the last note faded out…. Jens voiced what I was thinking: no one will EVER hear that specific version of Twinkle twinkle little star, ever again.
Pretty amazing to create something from nothing, having it take form for a minute or two, and then fading away, back into the formless again.
Have you created something from nothing today?
