Do you create with love, passion & peace?

Used with permission from artist Kym Brundritt

It’s been a bit of a slow summer for blogging. Lots of inspiration but little time to get it all down. So I have amassed a raft of pictures, a stack of books bulging with sticky notes and draft posts with ideas and links  but nothing presentable.

I suppose I could throw anything into a post in the interest of keeping the traffic numbers up- all the blogging advice tells you that frequency is key – but that’s not really the reason that I blog and I don’t think it’s the reason that you visit.

When I saw this painting at a booth at our local Art on the Street event it reminded me that while we may not all be painters, we are all artists in our own way – in the work we do, in how we raise our kids, in our relationships, in the pictures we take and the food we prepare. It prompted me to think about the energy I bring to my professional, community and personal projects.

I want each of my blog posts to be originals, created with love and passion and peace. I deserve that and so do you.

So, soon, when I get the last of the water out of my ears, when I’ve finished visiting museums with my kids and driving them to camps and when some of my client work has been completed, I will finish the Twelve Weeks to Trust series and return to a more regular blogging schedule. (I don’t think I ever promised they would be twelve consecutive weeks, did I?)

Until then, I hope you’ve had a fantastic summer with time for street festivals, beaches, family and some peace. As for me, I’m headed to my daughter’s dance camp recital… like the magician in Frosty the Snowman “busy, busy, busy”.
