3 Little Problems of the Creative Mind


They spend so much time looking through the lens knowing the importance of capturing a moment, the moment so that it can forever be shared with the world but yet so often missing out on living in the moment.


They can’t wait to tell their story.  When it’s time to write, it’s time, you can only wait so long before the idea passes or your muse leaves, often wishing to record moments of the past forgetting to participate in the present.


They get so engrossed in the stories and facts they read that they long for the next moment that they can escape back to their story.

So really there is one problem, often the problem of existing and living in the moment.

So live your passion but don’t forget to also live your life, in the moment!

Welcome, the poem, soon to be ‘spoken word’

I created this poem to perform as spoken word for my first Pay Day collaboration turning my Gravy Baby poem to song Introducing Ray the Musical Poet.  It was to be my intro but I’m not nearly ready to attempt spoken word yet, it’s quite the challenge.  If you don’t know much about spoken word I encourage you take a look.

I want to share the poem with you.  I’m excited to get it ready to perform.  This poem puts into word my passion for collaboration of the arts, to create something new.




This Blog has been viewed by 94 countries worldwide, that blows my mind!  I want to say a warm welcome to people from all countries and all nations!

Happy Monday and Welcome!


Artists unite,


In unity

Of our earth,

Of our people

From our passions that burn with in

The belly of the earth

So I have come up with a weekly collaboration idea!  I challenge you as writers and poets to “stuff” my opening and closing paragraphs with a written paragraph of no more than 5 sentences or a poetry verse of 6 lines that would fit as the “stuffing” of the story.

But don’t do this… Continue reading
