Today’s Inspiration

We all need inspiration, that little push, that reminder, to keep moving.  Here you go:


Rose Double DelightBeginning of Spring and a new growing season for Rosa Delight.  This rose bush has the smallest beginnings of new buds and brightest of tender, new leaves after a dormant winter.  Stating the obvious:  Growth takes time and patience.  Roses will come.  This goes for human growth too.

Quote for Writers and Artists:

“Don’t waste your life preparing:  Make your art now.  Perfecting your work and growing artistically happens as you go and grow.   Too much time spent planning or organizing or researching, only delays your creations.  Jump in now.  Make art now.  Write now.”

Just a friendly reminder from me to stop the inner critic that holds you back and to continue to believe.
