“Sing like no one’s listening,
love like you’ve never been hurt,
dance like nobody’s watching,
live like its heaven on earth.”
~ Mark Twain ~
Saturday felt like Spring…I opened several windows. I felt like Julie Andrews in the “Sound of Music“, you know the song…”The hills are alive with the sound of music…” Not warm enough for flip-flops but were getting there.
I went to the Boston Flower Show with my daughters this week. I saw beautiful flowers it was just enough to waken all the senses. I couldn’t wait to get home and put flowers everywhere! In the midst of my spring mood I wanted to paint something purple in the honor of spring. Sometimes if I am out and about town and I have an idea I will grab anything and sketch it out on a piece of scrap paper, napkin – just about anything. I remembered I had put it in a safe place so I wouldn’t lose it…I think you know where I am going with this. I couldn’t find it. Do you ever do that ? I searched everywhere, cleaned out draws, went through closets, looked in all my coats and pants pockets, etc. Nope nowhere to be found. Eventually I gave up defeated. Yesterday was a full work day starting a 5 AM. I took out all my supplies and was ready to start, when I opened up a sketch pad and between the papers…UREKA!!! I found it. Yes it all makes sense now! I had put it in the sketch book so when I wanted to sketch something I would have found it! At the end of my day yesterday, I pulled out a small box and labeled it “Scraps Thoughts and Sketches.” I even gave it a honoray place in my art room. Now all I need to do is remember to put them in there when I get home…
Have a wonderful day full of spring purple flowers!
