August Count Down

“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” ~A.A. Milne Winnie the Pooh  and my addition “trust your vision.”

August 28, 2011:  I’ve blogged since April and a pattern has emerged.  Towards the last week of the month a new theme reveals itself which will shape the next month’s blog posts.  Some examples:  images from my sketchbook in May, blocks to creativity in June, my writing projects in July, and sentence structure of parallelism in August.   And, for September, because I have a tremendous need to decompress, I will return to sketch play images and quotes to inspire.  It is the wedding month and I want JOY!
