"Notes from journal:  'get out of your comfort zone'; 'connect with your work, create an emotional response to the memory of a landscape'; 'of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult' and 'give yourself permission.'
As we transition from the glorious, more carefree days of summer to the beautiful, routine and relaxed days of autumn may we never forget that each day, each moment is a gift.
What a week!  Good and Bad...
On the good side I had an opportunity to take a writing/art workshop with Suzi Banks Baum and she re-ignited my excitement to start journaling again more faithfully.  I guess the last two years my journals have been focused on personal matters.  It is time to turn the page and get back to journaling about my art, thoughts and words related to life and art and how they circle each other.  One of the many great things that I contemplated from that day of writing and art and sharing is this thought:  "Give yourself permission"...YES!  We can give ourselves permission to take the whole day to paint or work on our art, we can take time to read that good book or go for a walk, we don't need to feel guilty about taking time to do all the wonderful things in life!  Thank you Suzi for that reminder!
So, as we all prepare for a wonderful weekend to celebrate Labor Day, may we all remember to give ourselves permission!  Permission to play, to dream OR whatever makes your heart sing!
