Misty morning here today...beautiful!
I have been admiring the lovely greens that are dotted all over the landscape at the moment, it's so fresh and bright. 
I spent most of my morning in the studio yesterday just thinking. Reading and listening to all these inspiring people from the world summit are building up the bubbles inside me and I needed time to reflect on it all. 
This morning I'm listening to Danielle LePorta from whitehottruth.com. A few days ago I signed up to her website and downloaded questions to ask your friends about who they think you are, it is a good thing to do! I asked a person who has been a friend of mine and like a sister and I did the same for her. 
I have been wanting to write aboutCreative Everyday Month which is coming up in November and today Leah is one of the speakers in the summit.

I've been listening to Chris Zydel this morning, from creativejuicesarts.com, she is so lovely! I found this interesting clip of a student of hers...


Art & Fear is on it's way to my pile of books to read. I have wan…

Blogging again!

I had this strong urge to start blogging today, so here I am again sharing the things I come across. My hubby asked me last night how I find all this stuff 'cause he never comes across it, he's just not that interested in what I'm fascinated by! I'm interested in art, people, life and finding my perfect philosophy!

This morning didn't start off the best. As I sat wondering why I felt so glum, I reached for this book that I had picked up a month ago, I don't know how it got to be in arms length, but I'm pretty glad it was there. I opened it up and read this...
Marriage is a good idea. But if you are looking for someone that can be everything, you’ll be disappointed! When you marry someone you take on their weaknesses as well as their strengths. It’s a package deal. By expecting perfection, you’re asking for more than either of you are capable of giving. However, when you get into trouble you can count on your partner.
