I want to celebrate creativity today. I’ve started a couple of projects lately but — because everything takes longer than expected — nothing has reached completion. Alas, my paint projects languish.
Instead, most of my time focuses on bookkeeping, boxing items for shipment, taking photos, writing blurbs, visiting estate sales. I will argue that art can envelope any of our endeavors but, let’s face it, some tasks are less exciting than others. The good news is that we are selling things on our Etsy shop.
David and I will transport a gorgeous Mid-Century Modern dining table set from our warehouse today to the booth. It will be fun to arrange things, but I’m itching to get back to those painting projects and finish them.
So today, let’s celebrate creativity in all forms with these inspirational quotes.
Søren-Kierkegaard, Danish philosopher, theologian, poet, social critic and religious author. 1813 – 1855
“To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself.” Søren-Kierkegaard
Maya Angelou, American poet, memoirist, and civil rights activist. 1928 – 2014
“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” Maya Angelou
Joseph Chilton Pearce, American author of books on human development and child development. 1926 – 2016
“To live a creative life we must lose our fear of being wrong.” Joseph Chilton Pearce
