AIR PLANTS // REMEMBER TO CREATE
Air plants are curious characters.
Curly and a dusty green color, the tendril-like stems almost appear plastic. Every 10 days for 10 minutes you let them swim. And, during the brief bath, they show you a vibrant shade of green that is so alive.
But most curious, is their lack of roots. They thrive and grow from nothing, relying only on air.
Perhaps we can learn from air plants. Learn to need less, to create and become with only the air we breathe.
I am guilty of needing too much to create, of thinking that the reason I haven’t written a story is because I’m missing a pen, or the time, or the inspiration. But, it’s all a trick we play. We don’t need things to create or to tell our stories. We just need to be. And do. And breathe.
Logan + I [finally] created this new art piece for a wall in our living room using air plants. And while we needed more than air to finish this project, each morning, as I come down the stairs and see the dangling globes with those curious green arms reaching out, I take a deep breath, and remember to create today.
What are you waiting to create?
