Challenge: A #clmooc identity shattering in six words
As we consider who we are, our identities in the spaces and places of the neighborhoods in our lives — what essence is there in all of them?
What six concepts shape you as you shape them?
Challenge: Consider your beliefs. Using six words, arrange them as phrases read horizontally and vertically to express an essence of your identity.
Okay. I looked at examples. I fiddled with some words. I rearranged words and phrases. I deleted. I remain unsatisfied. I settled.
I know, it’s contradictory and it’s supposed to be.
Understand and create colour.
Solitude together transforms.
That works for me. What about you? Is it too confusing? Now I feel shattered. And synthesized.

What a very cool exercise and I love your words and your play with them,Tania. I might have to try it even though it’s Monday and a new CLMOOC could be starting any minute now. I don’t think that matters.
Rules are to be broken.
Thanks, Bonnie. I agree, do it when you feel like doing it. What’s the worst that can happen?
I think the words resonate! I especially appreciate the phrase “solitude together transforms”; it’s veru apt for the creative process in general and the mooc experience as well!
Thanks, Jen. I like that we can be introverts and get energized by solitude and also come together to share creativity and create together.
I also love the line -solitude together transforms. It fits for me, a hobbit who likes occasional adventures. Thank you so much for writing a poem
Hi Sheri, there may be more of us hobbits than we think – energize alone, then come together with chosen people for conversation and creativity. Thanks for dropping by . 🙂
