A few weeks ago I was asked by Jenny Doh to be a guest curator at Crescendoh.com. Several guest curators each week are invited to share their unique and personal ART SAVES story and are asked to provide a few links each day to their favorite artistic blogs or sources of inspiration.
Tomorrow, Monday, begins my week as one of the guest curators at Crescendoh.com. I am honored to have been asked to share my personal ART SAVES story...
My story has to do with my proclivity to be a worrier and how involving myself in artistic pursuits helps me to manage my worries. I wrote my story and sent it off to Jenny the night before Mothers Day...which is the day that I found out about my own mother's serious illness.
So now...I have earnestly begun to put my words into action as I have started working on a new art journal...one that is deeply personal. As I become absorbed in the process of creating... my journal has become a way to both express and manage my concerns for my mother. It is helping.
Please stop over at Crescendoh.com to read more ART SAVES stories and to see all the exciting happenings there. ... I promise you will find inspiration!
We have just returned from our son Daniel's graduation from law school. After completing four years of college and three years of study at law school he has achieved his goal and earned the degree of Juris Doctorate. Our entire family is so very proud of Dan and his achievements.... ...and to top it all off....he is a wonderful and kind person...a true friend to many and a dear son. Congratulations Dan!
We are so grateful for you and for all our blessings! :)
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
