posts from blogger past

every morning after i wonder through my garden
i sit and read through some my favorite blogs
while visiting marie, the lost aussie
she posted about something seth , the altered page
he brought up a great point
and has challenged everyone to go through their "old" posts
and find a "buried treasure"
well, once i got reading, i realized that
this is a wonderful "self discovery"
when i started blogging , it was to take
the next step in my evolution
i was a little nervous, i'm by no means a writer
and was wondering how i would ever
come up with the words never mind
have something that would interest people


a year and a bit later
i've posted 235 times,
have had over 7700 visitors,
and 77 followers

i had a hard time deciding which was my favorite post
so i decided to use someone else's words

words to inspire

posted november 19th
for "a day of sharing words"
a challenge started by

"we get so caught up in the furry of our lives
that we forget the essential thing about art-
that the act of creating is a healing gesture,
as sacred as prayer,
as essential to the spirit as food is to the body

our creative work reveals us to ourselves,
allows to transform our experience
and imagination into forms that
sing back to us in a language of
symbol of who we are,
what we are becoming,
what we have loved and feared.

this is the alchemy of creation:
that as i attempt to transmute a feeling or a thought
into and artistic form that can be
experienced by another,
i myself am added to,
change in the process."
