Her kind words, yesterday, warmed my heart, making me want to continue on this journey. This path of putting myself out there,
the good, bad and ugly! I bought and made items for her to take to a sleep over, birthday party. She said, "all my friends, love what you come up with; they look forward to your creations." It was so nice of her to share this with me and nurture my creative edge. Did I do this with her and her creative endeavors? My son? I think so...do we do this with our family, friends? When you go in an art gallery or see art, even if it isn't perhaps your style, are you inspired?! Does this get your creative juices flowing, inspire you to try to paint, draw, make jewelry, etc? Or maybe when you go out to eat and the food is artfully arranged on your plate, do you hesitate and see the effort and think, I should try that. Are you open to art all around you, in your everyday life? Art is everywhere, look at your grandmother's hands, think of the art, she has touched, making jam, crocheting a sweater or afghan, a friend's kind words, a caress from a loved one, a pat on the back, a smile, a song that evokes a mood, poems, a gorgeous photo, our child's art work! Art can allow ordinary moments to become exclamation marks in your life. We all have the ability everyday to touch people, with a kind word. Words are art, the way they are presented and arranged. I am considering doing some guerilla art. I might go to the library and put, fortune cookie sayings in random books, to inspire or maybe write a poem in colorful chalk at the park, near the waterfront. Then sit back and observe, who notices. Or maybe I will leave a notebook, with a pen and my blog site and write the big question, "What inspires you?" Please write something and pass it on. Nature inspires me, my family and now the Warblers. I did see them this morning, checking out the boot, no eggs, yet! Just went out into the garage, one of them was sitting on the treadmill. I will try to capture a new photo this afternoon.
