Originally Blogging the Artist's Way. Thoughts, musings, experience of the 12-week course, January to March 2006. And after that?.... Life, creativity, writing. Where does it all meet? Here, perhaps.

Four Bloggers I’m Tagging

So many people have done this already.... anyone who would like to play, come on out!

Four Books I Recommend (This is hard, hard. Just FOUR?)

  1. The Speckled People. Hugo Hamilton. Marvellous memoir of growing up with a German mother and Irish-language obsessed father.
  2. The Lovely Bones. Alice Sebold.
  3. Writing Down the Bones. Natalie Goldberg. Like a pouch of little gems (or runes) for writers.
  4. The Prophet. Kahlil Gibran.

Four Artists that have inspired me

  1. Michelangelo. His statement when he was in his 87th year - Ancora Imparo - I am still learning. Inspiring
  2. Antoni Gaudi. Architect, artist... a complete artist. His work lifts me up, makes me smile giddy smiles.
  3. Van Gogh. His paintings, his letters, his struggle, his life.
  4. Bob Dylan. Forever Young.

Anything you want to enquire about?

Joy Eliz: Draw - poorly, Paint - poorly, Doodle - frequently. Collage. See my SoulFragments blog in links list.

Harmony: Puy lentils may be known as black lentils in US. With a cumin-ish sauce. Yum.

gaudi's work makes me smile giddily, to! i love art nouveau generally, but somehow the style has a special impact in the graceful and dramatic form of his architecture.

i'm also a big west wing fan. love the dialogue. oh, to be surrounded by super-smart people! (oh, to have super-smart people in the white house... sigh)
