"Life is playfulness . . . We need to play so that we can rediscover the magic all around us." - Flora Colao
I'm re-reading the famous book by Julia Cameron "The Vein of Gold - A Journey to your creative Heart" and am all inspired again my her simply stated facts on creativity.
Sometimes I get so wrapped up in my day-to-day duties, doing some serious painting, meeting deadlines etc., that I often forget to take time to play. . . as may of us do. However, I find that when I take time to 'play' with my art and experiment and try new colors or techniques - magical things happen. It is this pure joy and passion in my creative works that keep my life flowing and balanced but it is important to do/spend non-art hours in life as well and for me that includes yoga, hiking, biking, traveling, horseback riding and spending time with family and friends. That completes my life. What keeps your life amazing?
