I was beside him as a master of crafts. I was having fun, smiling before him all the time Proverbs 8:30 (Common English Bible)
Why do I go out and shoot photos? Why in the past I would go taking photos just for the sake of it? Why today you’ll see me with my smartphone’s camera creating images?
Because I have to do it. Sounds crazy, but it’s the truth. You see, the Divine Creative Erotic Spirit-the same that was about creating at the dawn of time-dwells within me as a Muse which pokes and prods me to create through my camera lens. You see, I made a resolution to shoot every day this year (even though it started January 4th when most resolutions fall flat); and thank God I’ve kept it so far.
The text above is quoted from Wisdom’s testimony in Proverbs. She was working alongside the Divine at creation and having a blast. When one creates-I mean really puts some thought into it-he/she engages that same wisdom, and they’ll have fun doing it too. And like Wisdom, they become co-creators with the Divine. Could it be that it takes Divine Wisdom to create? Or…
Could be. Anyway, that’s all to say is that’s why I do it.
