Every flower blooms at a different pace.

MY TWO CENTS Every flower blooms at a different pace… What a true and lovely quote. As it is for flower, so it is the same for us. Each of us blooms and grows at different rates.

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.

What I love most about this crazy life
