On being an artist


being an artist takes time.

you do not fit into the “work day” box.

you cannot rush creativity.

you cannot force profound words.

you must stop.

be still.



drink in the world around you.

you must dream.

be inspired.

and then…

you will create.

so please,

slow down.

take your time.

it is the only way

we will see

the very best of you.

    Wow. I am loving your blog. You are like a calm, encouraging whisper that speaks to my heart and reminds it to believe.

      don’t let the whisper fool you (but that is so kind of you to say), because typically I am LOUD ;) But truly, thank you… i think we all need to be reminded to believe cause it’s so easy to forget.
