Write Now

Write now
Before the tide of joy subsides
Before the voice recedes because you choose
Not to believe
Stop making excuses
Just for ten lines
Make believe
that you are of a unique wonderful weave
knitted in secret, in the deep places of your cells
and render true words that make light
of fear and self-rejection and the tender sad way of lethargy
Right now just write
before you say goodnight
and may the dreams you dream speak speedily
of love and hope and danger
on the other side of excuse
you have nothing to lose

    This is so beautiful! I have been just brave enough to start drawing. With all of this self doubt, the drawings have helped me to see there is nothing to fear. That even color is kind and desires me to play, and so I will.
    Thank you so much for encouraging me and inviting us to make the choice to create without hesitation.

    Love you Rebecca

    This is a very timely word, beautifully expressed. I liked the photo too. Where did you find it? The image really spoke to me.

    Today I read in ‘The Art Spirit” by Robert Henri, and something that caught my attention:
    “Beauty is an intangible thing; can not be fixed on the surface, and the wear and tear of old age on the body cannot defeat it.
    Nor will a “pretty” face make it, for “pretty” faces are often dull and empty, and beauty is never dull and it fills all spaces.”

    I like that, it fills all spaces.
    Interesting artist Robert Henri. Interesting artist Rebecca Boyd.

    Thank you Rebecca for helping us to be a little bit braver today.
