FLOWER QUOTE: BEGIN WHAT YOU CAN DO

November 11, 2019

Begin what you can do

MY TWO CENTS Begin what you can do, or dream you can do. Boldness has genius, strength, and magic in it… I find it hard to go after what I’m dream about. My “monkey” brain works hard to defeat me. So, I appreciate Goethe pushing me along and encouraging me to begin, as beginning is the most important part to fulfill any dream, and often the hardest part. So stay true to what you are passi...

FLOWER QUOTE: CREATIVITY LIES IN PARADOX

September 09, 2019

Creativity lies in paradox

MY TWO CENTS Creativity lies in paradox: serious art is born from serious play… This is something that Julia Cameron writes about in her book, The Artist's Way, and the necessity to play in order to create. Often, I forget to play, but I’m glad to be reminded to take the time to do so along with nurturing myself. Then the real art will come. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Julia Cameron (b. March 4, 194...

July 29, 2019
