Wise Words

I've had a lifelong love affair with words. I love reading them. Creating new ideas and stories with them. Consoling myself with them through poetry. Serve it up to me in any form, and I'll gobble it up. Yes, I do discriminate. The words have to make sense (to me), be free of distracting grammar potholes, and in some way elevate, motivate, inspire or delight me. Not asking for much, right?

Like most people, I often get an energy boost from a well-timed motivational quote. I have quite a few of my favorites on my Pinterest board, "Wise Words" - thank you, Pinterest for helping me become a digital hoarder!

So today I found a site that makes it simple to create my own quotable poster using my own images. Nice! I think I may have picked up a new vice.

Here's to creating art in all that we do, whether in work, play, or relationships!

Will I see you on Thursday? The countdown is on for opening night of the All Ceramics Exhibition (ACE) 2013, this Thursday, October 24th at Doongalik Studios, Village Road.

My 7 Stages of ACE:

Stage 1: Euphoria! You've been accepted to show pieces alongside amazingly talented ceramic artists!  

Stage 2: Panic! You've been accepted to show pieces alongside amazingly talented ceramic artists!

Stage 3: Creative Overload.  A floodgate of ideas scream for your attention, each one seemingly more flamboyant than the other.

Stage 4: Creative Reality Check. Ideas are quickly narrowed down as technical aspects of production determine which flamboyant pieces will make the cut.

Stage 5: Kiln Karma. Waiting, watching, praying that the kiln will be your friend just this one... more... time.

Stage 6: Bag Lady and Bag Lady Junior. Pieces fired and delivered with the help of a trooper of a daughter, a very patient Bahamasair flight attendant, and nine kind and merciful aisle passengers who said nothing despite all of the jostling from 2 passengers with way too many carry on bags!

Stage 7: Mix and Mingle! Can't wait to spend some time with newfound fellow artists and art lovers from all walks of life right here in Paradise! Hope to see you on Thursday!
