Books, Books, Books

I spent the evening tonight doing one of my favorite activities - browsing Barnes & Noble - well, any bookstore for that matter. Julia Cameron suggests artists dates, an hour stolen away for just yourself once a week. Browsing bookstores is always my go-to artist date. I always come out inspired and stuffed full of ideas. Tonight I greedily bought three books. But, the one I'm most excited about is The Guerilla Art Kit by Keri Smith. I'm getting ready to unleash some guerilla art on my environment. Stay tuned!!

Music Notes

Last night Judy told us that as she was sitting at Marshall's desk paying bills she kept coming across post it notes with pieces of music scribbled on them. Ideas for songs. I hope she saves them. I love the image of those little yellow sparks of Marshall's creativity still here to brighten our lives.

November 2008

The sun bounced off the brilliant red leaves of the sugar maple
And I thought, “I should photograph them.“
my friend, Marshall, died
And the leaves of the sugar maple lay crumpled on the ground.

A Dancer Dances

I'm always on the look out for things that inspire me and just recently I learned something about a friend that touched me and sparked my imagination. My friend, Brian, works in the corporate world but I know him as a dancer, one of the most talented dancers I know as a matter of fact. I've always wondered about my pal with the soul of a dancer trapped there in the corporate world with no outlet. But, I found out that Brian discovered an unused conference room on the 31st floor of his building and dances there on his lunch hour. It's a room full of windows so the surrounding buildings can see him - but he doesn't care - he dances. That just makes my heart sing!

My own little place to explore my creativity and imagination
