I love the quiet morning time, being able to slip into the day slowly.
A beautiful sunrise inspires me and fills me with awe.
We live on an amazing planet, and I am glad
I can view it all with an Artist's Eye.
Mornings are filled with rich black coffee and good reading.
Sometimes the material is deep, sometimes not.
Thomas Merton is a favorite, especially when I want to think.
The above book is wonderful~~when strict Catholic Monk
meets the Asian religions, and finds we all
come from the same cloth.
What a wonderful thought!
Sometimes morning provokes a solitary mood;
being astounded at the beauty of ONE
In a world burgeoning with MORE,
the singular sings.
I close my eyes and savor those notes.
And in the studio, my heart is like a child.
It is NOT serious here; there is fun to be found.
Let the rest of the responsibilities go and take a moment
to laugh, to play.
The day is started right.
With camera in hand, I find the still lifes of Mother Nature.
Not planned, not structured.
Left by the touch of the wind and perhaps a stray squirrel.
Arrangements better than I can create.
Earth~~the ultimate artist.
Ultimately, it all leads back to this.
Brushes, pencils, paint.
The tools, life blood, lust of every artist.
The studio a haven.
My thoughts returned to what I love so.
The day will be one of gesso and color,
light and dark,
canvas and paper.
This is a rich life.
I'd like to welcome a new follower, a dear friend from FaceBook, Todd-Michael St.Pierre. T-M is a fantastic author of both children's books and my personal downfall, Louisiana COOKBOOKS!
Please visit his web page HERE and take a look around. You need a cookbook.
It fills the head with all sorts of GOOD Morning Thoughts!
