The Art Spirit

There are moments in our lives, there are moments in a day, when we see beyond the usual. Such are the moments of our greatest happiness. Such are the moments of our greatest wisdom. If one could but recall his vision by some sort of sign. It was in this hope that the arts were invented. Sign-posts on the way to what may be. Sign-posts toward greater knowledge.

Spring: New Birth

I love Spring.  My birthday kicks it off officially every year.  Easter comes around, and with it, images of baby chicks, cadbury eggs, and wonderful sunday school lessons on Christ's Resurrection.  The trees bud and blossom, the grass shifts from brown and brittle to neon-green and lush.  And the Sun.

Let's take a moment to reflect on the great spring gift of The Sun.


With the sun comes new energy, more light, better running weather--> New Life, New New-Year's Resolutions, Pretty Magazines with lots of pretty covers and pages about organization and Spring Cleaning.

More thoughts are coming, but I have some cleaning I started and need to follow through on before I'm late for work.

Hopefully I won't be so long returning this time.
