Greetings and welcome to my blog. I'm starting off taking baby steps so please be patient with me. I have been so inspired the last few weeks from so many wonderful and talented artist I decided to jump in and give it a whirl myself. I already have been inspired to clean my studio (I'm still working on this) and get some artwork done.
This being a turning point in my life in so many different areas I felt starting this blog would be like giving birth to a new body of art that I hope will move and inspire all who see it. I came across these wonderful words from St. Augustine of North Africa that describes exactly how I feel at this stage of my life.
THE EVERYDAY MIRACLE
When people truly open their minds, and contemplate the way in which the universe is ordered and governed, they are amazed - overwhelmed by a sense of the miraculous. When people contemplate with open minds the germination of a single seed, they are equally overwhelmed - yet numerous babies are born every day, and no-one marvels. If only people opened their minds, they would see that the birth of a baby, in which a new life is created, is a greater miracle than restoring life.
These words are sooo true and sooo beautiful.
I envy all of those just getting back from Artfest but I'm grateful that you are sharing your experience with the rest of us ;) This would have been my 5th year in a row and although I'm a bit bummed I may go to Fiberfest to make up for it. I went to Fiberfest last year and had a great time much slower pace and a more intimate group. However there is nothing like Artfest it truly is a magical experience so unpack those bags, get some shut eye and keep sharing with the rest of us. Well as I learn and get more photos taken, "I promise to blog oh no.......EVERYDAY" we will see how long this last. Thanks for stopping by.
