First Rose

THREE QUOTES  from Silas Toball and Angi Sullins:
“If wishes were wings this dreamer would fly.” 
“Star Sisters–they live in the heavens and sprinkle star-spun ideas onto the eyes of waking dreamers.” 
“She laughs, even in the dark, knowing her heart is full of moonlight and her soul is full of stars.”

First Rose of 2012
First Rose

Life throws challenges.  BUT, I am reminded by these quotes to not stop dreaming.   Since the beginning of the year progress moved, foundation strengthened, vision cleared.   My shortage comes in the form of TIME: there just isn’t enough free time to do what I want to do.   BUT, I do make time each day, even if its only 30 minutes, I make time! I MAKE TIME!

    ONe of our gifts as artists is that we can think stuff up. I can think up way more projects than I have time for. The trick is to make your list and keep pecking away at it, a bit at a time.

    Be patient. You are zooming along!

    Hugs, MSW

    Beautiful rose and I love the quotes, especially “star-spun ideas.”
    Even thirty minutes keeps the creative spark alive… take a long breath and look at all that you have accomplished, Linda!

    Doesn’t that first bloom of spring stop you in your tracks? Maybe it’s true absence makes the heart fonder. Lovely photos. Keep on dreaming.
