Yowling Creator Winds

Yowling Creator Winds

Blustery winds blew through Wednesday. They swept across the 210 freeway, where I was traveling back at 10 p.m. from Lake View Terrace to San Gabriel. Freeway signs fell to the ground. A tumbleweed the size of my tiny Toyota Tercel bounced across the asphalt as if owned the highway. A flurry of fall leaves made me think we were having a brown winter, and someone would have to shovel me out.

That is, if I  survived.

Dust, dirt, and branches cascaded down from Angeles Forest and the hills around the Rose Bowl. They corkscrewed into tiny tornadoes and gusted into the underpasses, where I thought the other drivers and I would be safe. Even the truckers were scared. I could tell. The worried ones pulled over to the freeway shoulder and just trembled there.

As I continued to drive, the car kept shuddering. I sang to keep to myself company amidst a phenomenon I’ve never seen in my 40 years in L.A. Hurricanes happen elsewhere. So does snow. The biggest worries we have are rain and the occasional earthquake.

The chaos of the wind on Wednesday reminded me of the creation process and how we must enter the unknown. Before I brainstorm, my mind feels cloudy with a whirlwind of ideas spinning and swirling. They blow every which way. Just as I capture one, another attracts my attention. I go after it, and still another sweeps me away.

Just like the wind that night, sometimes I don’t know if I will survive swimming through the insanity of pursuing my goal. But when I forge ahead through my Yowling Creator’s Way, not always knowing where it will take me, something spiritual happens. I create.

What does your Yowling Creator’s Way feel like?

    This describes me perfectly when trying to write my research paper. I had so many different ideas but did not know what to do it on. It felt like a hurricane in my head. But after starting to brainstorm it helped me pinpoint exactly what I wanted to do. Brainstorming has been a very effective way to get my ideas off my brain and onto my paper.

    My yowling creator winds feel like deceptively strong winds. My mind is oh so calm, until my thoughts come flooding in and I have so much going through my mind that I don’t know how to put it all into words. It’s the calm before the storm, the silence before the thunder. However once I get over my own struggles, the path there after has been cleared for me and ready to accomplish my tasks.

    This article it’s a perfect comparative with the art of writing. My ideas get very crazy, flurry, and with many confusing words. After the chaos, my ideas starts moving place to place until many tries, my ideas get on their correct place.
