a bit of inspiration

Sunday, February 28, 2010 - 12:23 pm GMT

There are some days.

You know, those days when every word is a struggle, the light fades before you can change lenses, and the brush and canvas are not even on speaking terms.

Those days.

On those days I can get to wondering what the point is.

So I thought I’d share this quote with you because it really resonated with me. It is going up on my studio wall where it will remind me to keep perspective when I’m having one of those days. Maybe you’ll find it a bit inspiring too, or at least interesting.

I think this is something we grasp intuitively, but perhaps rarely think about.  And I think it is really beautifully put.


“…if someone asks ‘To what purpose should we help one another, make life easier for each other, make beautiful music or have inspired thoughts?’ he would have to be told: ‘If you don’t feel it, no-one can explain it to you.’ Without this primary feeling we are nothing…”

Albert Einstein 1919


Wishing you an inspired and beautiful day :-)

We all have those days, weeks , sometimes months don’t we? I think this is a very worthwhile quote to keep and to consider, on days when inspiration seems so far away. I’m on a very inspired path these days, feel as if a floodgate has opened once again, after a very long “freeze”. ;) I am back to blogging at both of my blogs, in addition to several other projects that are coming together, in a timely and satisfying way.

I’m so glad I stopped in. Hugs Kayt, G

What i do not understood is in truth how you are now not really much more neatly-favored than you might be now.
You’re very intelligent. You recognize therefore
considerably in the case of this matter, produced me personally believe it from so many various
angles. Its like women and men don’t seem to be interested until it is one thing to accomplish with Woman gaga!

Your personal stuffs excellent. All the time deal with it up!
