Dear Creative Connection Diagram

I may not always be fully engaged in the breadth and scope of these possibilities, but having this framework is enough to keep me going wherever I’m at.

By Alexa Rixon

You allow me to see shared meaning, cultivate generosity and have more opportunities for a sense of community wherever I am. I may not always be fully engaged in the breadth and scope of these possibilities, but having this framework is enough to keep me going wherever I’m at. I’m thankful for all the forms of nourishment and resources I’ve been gifted, including the comforts of shelter, food and clothing; the joys of the arts, music, and reading; acceptance and belonging; the discomforts I am able to sit with…here’s to the relationships that make it possible. To Tokyo, Taipei, Hong Kong and now Chicago, experiences with them have given me experiences to understand you. Hopefully as this creative connection expands, we’ll have more to share, more common spaces and alternative, sustainable, fluid ways of locating ourselves.

With gratitude, 

Alex
