Creativity is electric

Live it, create it, draw it, paint it, perform it, design it, write it out

and stay true to self.

What do books, artwork and a gnome with a broken foot have in common?  Nothing! I am in search of  inspiration in any form. I have been caught in a dust storm of sorts, a creative dry spell. I am finding ways to replenish thy soul, by doing the things I enjoy, like reading books from my favorite authors. It helps to know that this will pass, to be patient and to do the things that will fill my well of inspiration.

I would love your feedback. How do you cope with a creative dry spell?

Julia Cameron, The Artist Way

Henriette Anne Klauser, Write It Down Make It Happen

David Usher, Let The Elephants Run

Any given Sunday

Yes I feel like holding on to the day a bit longer. Sunday always felt like a day to take time for myself, to recharge the senses, relax, create or do the things that make me feel whole again. Always a little sadness for me when wrapping up the day knowing Monday starts all over again. So for now I will enjoy the day.

Take time for yourself, do what makes you happy!

Find your joy, and dance through your day

Silent messages

Moment taken as I gaze toward the sky

clouds catch my eye

Im lost in the ease of movement

effortless motion of forms

the wind whispers….

that is how you should move through life

The little things in life

When we don’t look down

When we don’t look around

When we don’t stop to take in the moment

We might miss out on something spectacular

This day during an impromptu trip to the beach with friends, the kiddos looked down as they walked and noticed the ground moving! It was covered with colorful unique shells that slowly moved, snails! Hundreds of them! Squeals of delight, excitement and then curiosity kicked in. So it taught us an important lesson, always look where you step or you might squash a friend!

Awake

orange chair - 1 (2)

Awake, droplets of anticipation

gleaming for the new day sun

fresh, inspiring

reach up, reach out

your in the moment

the clouds are near and heavy

a glimmer of light appears

feel it, accept it

a new day begins

 

Summer nights illustrated

The scary things that greet us in the dark..
