Just a journal page... hope to be doing a canvas soon. I have a painting to do for my granddaughters room and I am trying to muster up the courage to tackle my vision!
I shared the kids books, The one and only Ivan with you in my last post. http://sinderella-studio.blogspot.com/2013/01/yep-i-am-still-alive.html I think I shall be sharing Ivan's wisdom with you all year. I believe we all need a little more common sense and humility, kindness would be beneficial too. Oh, and less "what's in it for me" would help the world too! Okay, off my soap box. Words to think about:
"Humans speak too much. They chatter like chimps, crowding the world with their noise even when they have nothing to say." Ivan, the one and only, by Katherine Applegate. I now look at people spouting negativity and gossip with chimp faces! I smile and walk away, instead of becoming angry and frustrated.
An artist earlier this year, Joss of http://soulbrush.blogspot.co.uk, asked what would your one word be for 2013. At the time I answered in two words, duct tape. I happen to be very opinionated and direct (a bad combo). So when people ask me what I think - I tell them. Knowing me I don't know why they ask if they don't want to hear my answer. They know I will tell them. So, I chose duct tape. It is to remind me to process and not really answer. I then later added glitter! Because if I take a deep breath and roll my head - then say GLITTER. I smile and tend to not need the duct tape. So far I have found these words very useful. So, you may want to try finding words for yourself!
Thanks for letting me chatter, hopefully not like a chimp, and stopping by! Please be sure to visit all the fabulous thoughts and work at Sunday Sketches hosted by Alexandra!
life is short, make sure you LIVE it
