What a

What a difference a day makes.

I used to suggest to clients that keeping a journal, even if it was sentence, or a word to express  how they/you felt at that moment, or about the day.  Not everyone likes to write, or wants more words.

Since in PL, (Perfect Liberty) we say,  “Life is art”  (Precept #1) I began to suggest if not a word, a sketch, or picture, something doodled.  It doesn’t really matter, no one will see or read what is written, unless you share. It is for YOU from YOU.

At the time, it seems insignificant, but that simple “action” leads to appreciation and gratitude.  As the days progress (nights) something beautiful starts to happen, you see what “was” in such a different light.  No two days are the same. Never.  Moments cannot be relived.

Even if I end up adding only one bit of shading or colour tonight, this little card will have another dimension.  AND yes, even if I don’t get to do anything with the card, today, tomorrow or the day after, I will SEE the card differently with each passing day.

A”story” of my own making…..    Happy sunshine, and many creative opportunities be afforded you today.  If it is evening when you read this, may you be blessed with a contentment of peace in your sleep.

mar 17.17 watching

It was a beautiful day .. I took to the roads .. you’ve often heard me say how I love driving the highway, headed out of the city core.  The stretch of roads I take have a lot of country side along the way. It is a way for me to unwind.

I’ve undertaken the huge task of clearing my work table, and letting go of the bits and pieces that seem to get left behind after each and every project.  I think that last over-haul was perhaps last fall when I was working on the greeting cards for the church.

As an artist it is easy to get lax, I find that I need to challenge myself to step outside the box, much like with my writing.  I can get very motivated, the ideas spring endlessly past my gray cells, yet I’m not smitten enough to take action.  Then out of nowhere, I know the time is right.  Since last week, I’ve noticed a lot “gemstone” colours, spring colours mainly, I’m rather excited to see what is around the corner.

I got knitting needles today, I’m not keen on knitting, but I found myself looking at square in the Michael’s’ store, they ask for donations of 9″ squares, they are put together to make colourful blankets for one of their charities. Who knows.  I do know how to knit, it just doesn’t appeal to me.
