Sometimes my creative mind feels like this photograph. My ideas are like blades of grass, although at first glance it may seem that they are all alike, each one has it's own unique shape. They twist and turn, fighting with each other to be noticed by the sun. My ideas are like that. Each trying to escape my mind and make it to my fingertips, the actual workers of my creative life.
I decided to create this blog as a way to take all of those individual blades of grass and create a large field of harmonious beauty, where my photography, art, crafts, writings and collections could be combined as a canvas for which to share with others. A place where all the things I create, collect and love could perhaps be sent out into the world, like tiny whispers in the wind, to inspire and motivate others to bring creativity into their lives. A place where I could showcase my work, reach more customers and make new friends.
I've always loved a good adventure and this seems like one for the ages. I'm excited, full of nervous energy that I hope to channel into this undertaking. I'm scared too. Will I be able to keep up with my new commitment? Will anyone visit my blog? Will people find inspiration in my work? What will I learn about myself along the way?
There is only one way to find the answers to these questions and that is to jump in with both feet and just enjoy what comes of it!
That is exactly what I plan to do!
Here was my horoscope for today:
You can spin fantastic yarns by following the separate threads of personal feelings, weaving them into a fabric that moves beyond your individual issues. Others may hear deep wisdom in your stories today that you don't even realize is present. You're just sharing what's on your mind, but your heartfelt emotions have positive impact by inspiring those who get a glimpse of your inner world.
"Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves." -Sir James Barrie
