|Taking silly photos with Aleli and Vivienne|
"A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men."
Well, I’ve just returned from Lucky Star Art Camp in the beautiful Texas hill country where I spent a week soaking up inspiration and connection… and spent a whole lot of time painting.
The experience reminded me of the necessity to take time to “fill the well.”
For me that means taking time to slow down and keep calm, reading in the sunshine, stepping outside at midnight to watch for shooting stars, doodling, writing poetry and finger painting.
More than anything I am reminded that my every day is a process with one thing leading to the next. That there is no right or wrong way. And that I will figure it out.
Sometimes it takes letting go and stepping away for things to fall into place.

Can you believe we got to paint there, right down by the river each day? So inspiring. I wish you all could have been there.
Have a wonderful weekend!
