What do you wish to discover?

Every Wednesday I participate in Jamie Ridler Studios´ Wishcasting Wednesday practice. Knowing what I wish for helps me guide my actions.

Today Jamie asks "What space do you wish to discover?". You can participate too by joining the Linky party at Jamie´s prompt post.

Today the Universe seems to be talking to me through my iPod. :D I had it in shuffle and the first song provided when I turned it on before reading the prompt was this one:

"When I Go Out With Artists"

When I go out with artists
They talk about language and the cubists and the dadaists
And I try to catch their meanings
And keep up with all the martinis
I don't know which should be my favorite paintings

If I could see, if I could see, if I could
See all the symbols, unlock what they mean
Maybe I could, maybe I could, maybe I
Could meet the artists, and get to know them personally

If I were David Byrne
I'd go to galleries and not be too concerned
Well I would have a cup of coffee
And I'd find my surroundings quite amusing and
People would ask me which were my favorite paintings

What if the artists ran the TV?
All the ads would be for fine scotch whiskey:
Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, the whole single malt family

The artists of the future
Will make up new things and different nomenclatures
And they'll stand amongst their pictures
And they'll sing and laugh and quote from scriptures and
When they go home they'll dream of brilliant paintings

I wish to discover all kinds of creative people: visual artists, sculptors, collagers, photographers, knitters, painters, crafters, decorators, cooks, bakers ... What´s your gift? What do you create? Drop me a line and let´s chat. :)

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also! :)

(And as I'm studying for my master's in cultural studies, I know exactly what they're saying in that text, lol! It really sounds like my whole last semester, trying to figure that out! :))

Lol Nienna! I´m more like a singer, wondering about things. :)

It´s fab how we can find music & lyrics through different sites to share them Cindi.

Thanks Fran. It came up in my music shuffle as it is one of my 100 favourites. :D

Thanks Jen. :)

Wonderful! I love that you include so many types of people in your definition of artist. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you also.

I´ve met so many cool creatives on the web that it opened my perspective SM. :)
