Still Life ~ craft + creativity
photo by Charlotte Hamrick
Still Life is our regular feature that invites writers, artists, and musicians to share a favorite creative prompt or craft lesson, or to tell us about a book, poem, song, or film that’s been inspirational to them. Still Life offers opinions, experiences, or lessons on creativity, artistic processes, and the role of arts in culture.
For this installment of Still Life, we’re republishing one of Still contributor Charlotte Hamrick’s essays from her Substack newsletter, The Hidden Hour. We loved Charlotte’s evolution with the moon and the compelling meditations she comes to while considering nature, music, place, and dreaming of the moon.
