It only takes a spark... to get a fire going.
The Biblical story of the creation of humanity has the Creator making man from clay and then breathing His own life into him, and it's said of man that we were made in the image of the Creator. I find that symbolism striking and relevant. If our work is to be human, it's our task as its creator to breath life into it. Inspiration (literally "to inhale") is everything we do to draw our deepest breath from the world around us - all that we love and admire, all that we care about and want to protect: everything that lights our fire. But it's the act of exhaling into our work that makes it ours, that gives life and spark to what we make. Your authentic and best work will be made in your image. It will reflect you to both the world and yourself. -- David duChemin
Both my ears and my eyes prefer a quiet and tender melody. Training the eyes to "hear" and the ears to "see" is one of the best gifts my camera and music have given to me. These lyrics...
I remain grateful.
There's a new love in my life. Isn't he gorgeous?
It's been a long time since there was a newborn in our lives. He's so tiny, my little nephew. So how come my heart feels SO big? :)
