This post has nothing to do with berries,

but isn't this a lovely image? I carry my camera with me everywhere since I started blogging. Can anyone out there relate?

Blogging encourages my creativity in so many ways. I am more focused on the beauty and potential in my surroundings and sharing my discoveries brings me so much joy. I think that's the best part...the sharing. When I hit the "publish post" button, I feel like I just opened up my heart and let someone else take a peek inside. That's both freeing and scary at the same time.

I want to write from my heart more. I want to take more risks in my artwork but I have trouble letting go. e e cummings understood the artists' predicament - the freedom and the insecurity that can surface when we bare our souls - as he wrote:

Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity,
wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals
the human spirit.

Believing in myself...Why is that so hard? Why do I allow the voices of insecurity and doubt to drown out the voice of Truth?

  2. Why so hard to belive in ourselves? I know one reason... but I'm not saying ;-)

    Opening up is scary when a heart is tender. But for someone who creates from their heart, it's essential. At least I think it is. It helps your muse find you.


Your lovely comments make my day!
