The seven gifts that come from working in your inner world

"Allow into your art space these seven gifts that come from working from your inner world:
The courage to sit and wait.
The curiosity to open closed doors and explore what is behind them.
The ability to listen to yourself.
An appreciation for the experience of all life.
A respect for the power of your imagination.
The compassion to try to embrace all things with unconditional acceptance.
And an awe for the path of knowing."
From Spirit Taking Form by Nancy Azara

A couple of myYahoo art groups post a Quote of the Day. The quote above is from yesterday and it struck such a chord im me that it inspired me to attempt a series to explore them. Here is the first gift--the courage to sit and wait.

  2. Wow Linda,
    Your pages are beautiful. I love the birds nest. I was browsing your blog when I realized we don't live far from each other. I live on the South Shore. Do you mostly work digitally?
