Another Quote

"I have seen the sea when it is stormy and wild;
when it is quiet and serene;
when it is dark and moody.
And in all it's moods, I see myself."
---Martin Buxbaum---

Fighting the January "Blahs" lately. Something that seems to descend on me almost every January. Drawing class at the Center helps. And hopefully, today at home, I will make time to be creative, to play, to just "let it flow"!!!! It's a beautiful day!!!

Happy Birthday Mom!!

You lived almost 83 wonderful years---and I got to be part of 54 of them. I am sooooo incredibly thankful for that!! Watched "Julie and Julia" this morning and loved it!! When it got to the part where Julie takes off the plastic snap-together pearls to put on real ones I knew you were with me!! I will keep yours forever!! I know how you loved those beads!!!

This Quote Gave Me a Jolt!!

Came across this quote in the winter issue of La Vie Claire magazine-------

"How we spend our days, is, of course, how we spend our lives."
---Annie Dillard---

It really did give me a jolt----made me think of how many days I just waste---fritter them away on inconsequential stuff when I could be using the time to do something I love, do something creative. I complain often about the passing of time so why do I waste so much of it!!! Need to work HARD on that one!!

By the way, La Vie Claire is the most all around beautiful magazine!! If you're not familar with it you should check it out sometime. Rather expensive and there are only 4 issues per year but well worth it!!!!

Happy New Year! Happy New Decade!!

Woke up this morning to blinding sunlight and it instantly lightened my mood! What a great way to start a new year!! And that Blue Moon last night-----WOW!!! Took a walk in the snow at midnight the night before and it was so light out, it was eerie---but nice!!
Got off to a good start today by doing morning pages!! Haven't done them in ages and I don't know why----just don't like to take the time I guess. But it felt GREAT!! So, hopefully, I will continue!! Wishing everyone health, happiness and LOTS of creativity and inspiration in the coming year!!!
