"If you're alive, you're creative... we 'reduce' and 'deflect' our creative selves in many ways.
Life is the creative act, not the canvas or the blank page." - Creative is a Verb by Patti Digh
What Are Mud Balls?
For me, mud balls are life's ups and downs. They are the flaws,struggles,doubts,mistakes and positives of life. They create the layers of our lives that shape and polish us.
Concretely, Mud Balls are a pastime tradition of Japanese Children. They are called hikaru dorodango which are balls of mud that are formed by hand over a period of time using layers of dirt and then finally polished.
