i’ve become kind of a quote nut in the last few years. it seems wherever i turn there is some awesome piece of wisdom said just so perfectly that i want to mark it or highlight it or sticky note it or save it in some way. and i often wonder: why didn’t i think of that??
i worked with my girls this week on quotes in their art journals and they all had some that were meaningful to them to work with. what speaks to one doesn’t necessarily speak to another so it’s a highly personal thing. but we talked about how powerful latching onto just a few words that have impact can be.
so i’ve been thinking about the ones that resonate with me and wondering if there is some common ground. do i tend to gravitate toward the same ideas in just slightly different ways? what ideas or concepts draw me in and prompt me to want to incorporate them into my daily life?
well… if i had to pick just 3…these are the ones that are my beacons… the lights that illuminate my way through the twists and turns of the creative life (not to mention life in general).
of course, there are many others… what about peace, love and joy?? or inspiration? or courage?? or acceptance?? i could go on, but there is a lot of overlap and i feel that, at this particular time in my life, these 3 cover enough ground to keep me moving forward in a positive direction. the basics. simple. what about you??
speaking of amazement, the light at the salton sea is something that amazes me no matter how many times i see it. enjoy and have a wonderful easter!!
