There’s a certain magic to the words “Be Wild”. They evoke a sense of freedom, a call to express oneself without fear or hesitation. For us Silver Creatives, those seasoned in the art of living and creating, these words are more than just a catchphrase; they’re a mantra, a philosophy, a way of life.

As we age, society often expects us to slow down, to settle into routines, to be less adventurous and more ‘sensible.’ But why should creativity have an expiry date? Why should our age dictate the extent of our imaginative exploration? Now, more than ever, it’s time for us, the Silver Creatives, to challenge these boundaries and make wild art, music, poetry, and more.

In my home recording studio, donned in my full Blind Mime Ensemble garb, I feel a sense of liberation that is hard to put into words. The eccentric outfit, the myriad of instruments, the potential for creation – it all fuels my desire to push the boundaries of conventional music and create something truly unique.

And isn’t that what being a Silver Creative is all about? It’s about harnessing the wealth of experiences we’ve gathered over the years and channeling them into our creative pursuits. It’s about daring to step outside the box, to experiment with new styles and techniques, and to create art that is as complex and multifaceted as we are.

Being a Silver Creative isn’t about playing it safe. It’s about embracing the unfamiliar, the uncomfortable, and the downright strange. It’s about challenging norms and defying expectations. It’s about making art that reflects who we are, in all our glorious complexity.

So, let’s paint with bold, vibrant colors. Let’s write poetry that challenges and inspires. Let’s make music that breaks the mold. Let’s be wild in our creativity, pushing the boundaries of what is possible and creating art that truly reflects who we are.

Because, at the end of the day, being a Silver Creative is about more than just making art – it’s about expressing ourselves, telling our stories, and leaving our mark on the world. It’s about living life to the fullest, embracing every opportunity for creative expression, and inspiring others to do the same.

So, fellow Silver Creatives, let us not allow age to confine our creativity. Let us embrace the wild, the untamed, the unexplored. Let us create art that is as unique, as beautiful, and as wild as we are. Now more than ever, let’s be wild!
