Today is the launch of Andrea Scher’s gorgeous new website Superhero Life. It is such a stunning site and I’m so excited for her!
So, in celebration, she’s asked some folks to answer the question: What is your Superpower?
I had to ponder this for a while, not sure what it would be, but what has come through is that my superhero power is PLAYFULNESS.
One of the common themes through everything creative I put out into the world is playfulness. I think one of the things I have to give to the world is taking left brain activities and creating right brain playful approaches to them.
It feels so grown up to just proclaim that!
When I discovered my love for photography, I taught myself by just being playful. Just experimenting and seeing what happened. Of course, this experimentation drove me to research, to learn, to take classes but it wasn’t started by reading a book about aperture and shutter speed. It was sparked by experiencing it.
It doesn’t matter what age we are, 18, 27, 35, 44, 60, 78…we can all learn through adding a bit of playfulness to the way we see the world. Through these last 2 years of leading these workshop I’ve learned that something I do is to invite people into my creative experiments and invite them to create there own. When I see people getting caught up in the left brain parts of photography I swoop in with my playful cape (sparkly of course) and invite them back into the right brain through some playful activity or way of looking at things.
So, I proclaim it as my superpower today!
