Osho, Inspiration, Tea and Rain…..oh and a contest!
I am here to seduce you into a love of life; to help you to become a little more poetic; to help you die to the mundane and to the ordinary so that the extraordinary explodes in your life.
~ Osho ~
The Bee Garden
This morning as I sipped my tea, and read this Osho poem it deeply inspired me, actually it threw the doors wide open on my otherwise wet and rainy day, and it reminded me that this is what I write a blog for, lofty aspirations I know, but what else can I do, as an artist I am driven by muse, and if there is no muse………
Images have always had a powerful and inspirational effect on me, as do stories, and together welllll this makes me a very happy artist indeed! Today as I write the rain falls in hard deep sheets of wetness that I know my garden needs badly, but my soul cringes at the cold and damp that it brings. Yesterday it was warm and sunny, and so I grabbed my camera and headed outside to capture some of the changes in the garden, of flowers newly opened, deep green leaves that have filled the trees and the wold roses that have sprung up all over my large and wild rose bush. I have to admit that I crave more and more warmth and in longer stretches, yes it is fair to say that I am deeply craving the heat of summer, but what else can one do when it is cold and rainy outside, but sit and muse on what we crave!
This month is am throwing a Facebook contest, which has been on for a week already but do not fear, if you have not had a chance to enter yet the closing date is Summer Solstice June 21st, so there is loads of time. The giveaway is a purple drum! You see I made a few of these for local collage students to use with the kids they will be working with– and well, I had an extra–but since I do not make purple drums except for the students–I decided to give it away! Having said that the response has been so amazing perhaps I should consider making purple drums–what do you think?
