If, in your travels, you are suddenly awestruck, make sure that when you can move again, you stay awhile. Awe inspiring events provide a lot of data and a tremendous amount of energy that, if absorbed, can literally change your DNA. Not to mention your soul. Some say, scratch beneath the surface, and you’ll find dirt in everyone. I say, pay enough attention and you will be awestruck over and over, because people have tremendous abilities, insights, talents that go largely unn
Just reading this quote makes my soul prick up its ears: True art makes the divine silence in the soul break into applause.
……..~ Hafiz I hope you can all hear the applause, because your art is true for you. Smile, bow, accept the joyful approbation, and keep working! Burst Into Applause #Hafiz #soul #applause #silence #divine #ears #trueart #CWWOL20120411
. I couldn’t just leave yesterday’s design alone. As usual, I have a natural inclination towards symmetrical design. I blame it on my childhood love of kaleidoscopes. No, I attribute it to my childhood love of kaleidoscopes. Why should I disparage my own taste, because some consider asymmetry superior? When everyone is following the same rule, it is no longer more interesting. On the other hand, since I must always be my own devil’s advocate, why should I have to choose which
. Two is SO important in our culture. Two of us, the two of us, make a couple, which is assumed to be vastly superior to a single, no matter what the divorce statistics scream otherwise. The truth is, in the final analysis it is just you and your soul. That’s the ultimate couple. If you have a relationship there, you are WAY ahead in the MEANING OF LIFE game. Two You don’t have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.
Nobody can discover the world for somebody
. That piece looks like a dog’s breakfast, he blurted. She paused. What do you mean exactly? A total mess, he grinned. Like the world. A Dog's Breakfast Now you’re getting all existential to deflect attention away from the fact that you don’t like the digital art I just spent hours on. She felt a little hurt ~ even though she had worked at being professional about her work. But this wasn’t just anybody: couldn’t he see what she saw? And do you really think the whole world is
We like to think we can point the way for others, especially our children. How did that work for your parents? Pointing the Way Each of us has our particular passions, our own soul, our own destiny. We shouldn’t try to take the adventure of diving deep into their own destiny away from somebody else. It doesn’t really work. It just throws a monkey wrench into their machinery for a while ~ or maybe puts a monkey on their back. Stay way from monkey business. #particularpassions
A friend of mine, Roberta Hickey, gave me some literature and advised, “Carol, you should go see this glass display, especially the work of Irene Frolic.” On Friday, November 5, my husband and I went to the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery, to see GLASS FACTOR: Luminaries in the Canadian Art Scene. There were approximately 100 works there, but I had eyes only for Irene Frolic’s work. Her glass heads captivated me. This piece is one of Frolic’s older works, and is part of a ser
Someone at work said this to me last week. We were talking about what’s been happening in my life as far as my artwork is concerned, and she said I should be open to whatever could happen. This may sound rather undefined to you, but there were strings within my being that vibrated with, and kept reverberating to her words. How could she know that this is a constant entreaty I make to Life: help me be open. Awake, and open. You use a glass mirror to see your face: You use work
It is quite a step to jump from doodles to passion, but I am inspired, for whatever strange reasons, to do so. I have a great passion for doing art. I am constantly drawn to others who exhibit this passion, who spend every spare moment, or, who “steal” moments from activities that others might consider more necessary, or even sacrosanct, in order to practice art. My thoughts seldom stray far from some aspect of it. Whenever I spend money, it is usually in service of art. I re
