...to stand on the meeting of two eternities, the past and future, which is precisely the present moment; to toe that line. -H D Thoreau

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be
to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. -
T. S. Eliot

Disinherit Praise

Cultivate stamina.

I believe in a spider check before bedtime.
I believe in the music so loud you can feel it.
I believe in the drama on the stage.
I believe in the colors of wavelength.
I do believe that experimenting in other mediums gives energy in your primary work.
I believe in stepping out of the usual color box.
Again and again.

Cease trying to work everything out with your minds. It will get you nowhere. Live by intuition and inspiration and let your whole life be Revelation. -Eileen Caddy

  6. Great quote and I'm continuing to work on the "thinking" aspect before doing, hence my "not showing" what I am working on book wise yet ; (

    Reminds me of the paul simon song: Think Too Much

    Cheers!

  7. I keep coming back to this, looking at it and trying to come up with a meaningful comment. I can't think of the words that would do justice to the feeling of mystery I get when I enlarge it as far as it will go and fill my computer screen with it.
