It’s Should Never Be work. Its Just A Curious Kid’s Exploration

The alarm rings & its time for me to get up & get ready for work once again. I wish I could get a few more hours sleep & actually taste my breakfast for once, rather than having to waffle it all down in a bid to beat the morning rush. But then I snap out my wishful thinking & remind my self that they are millions of people around the world with working days just like mine. Who am I to bitch & complain about working for a living I should be grateful right? Well is it really wishful thinking for me to expect the majority of my life to be spent on something I am actually passionate about & contributes positively to society? After-all time is the only real commodity I have, once its gone, its gone.

Thinking back to my younger days where the luxuries of food & shelter was a given & all that you worried about was what new discoveries will be made in the garden, park or if your lucky museum. So what inspired me to go running through the bushes, read up on far & varied topics from outer space to the adventures of Alasdair Gray books, way before money was an incentive & when did it all change. It seems that a clear shift in attitude occurred when your asked as a child “What do want to be when you’re older” this implies you need to pick a field & stay in it.

For a child exploring the world that seems very confining, to stay in one field of interest. However in order to continue living your told “you need to find something that pays & whatever time you have left you can spend on your interests”. Is this really still necessary in the 21st century, surely the most beneficial thing for the broader public health is for people to get up every morning with an appetite for new discoveries & pass on this enthusiasm on to the people they engage with. Similar to the infectious nature of a curious kids need for exploration.

The Vision

If your reading this you are witnessing the very first baby steps of a collective, a creative venture, a vision by the name of Enlightened ~ Allure.

The Vision of Enlightened ~ Allure is to ultimately create an interactive website that serves as a hub for creative development. By orientating around three key principles of: artistically, intellectually & lightheartedly enlightening users through content.With surprises of original creative content (music, photographs, poems…), event invites and much more for users; all inspired by the theme of posted content on the site.

Although Prior to & after the official launch of Enlightened~ Allure, this blog will be providing a rare insight into the evolution of Enlightened~ Allure, the concepts, ideas & characters that mold the enterprise.

In order to get a comprehensive view of Enlightened~ Allure, three key characters within the collective will be presenting various content/material & concepts that they encounter, that help develops them & ultimately the DNA of Enlightened~ Allure. The characters consist of: Curatious (Creative En-light),  Alldose Huxley(Intellectual En-light) & Bertie Russ (En-light-hearted), all of them presenting within their desired fields.

Looking forward to our collective evolution. Hopefully it will be a Vision that burns bright !
