One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts. (Psalm 145:4 KJV)
To be surprised, to wonder, is to begin to understand. (Jose Ortega y Gassett)
Summer absorbed me into it’s activity. Adventuring with the nieces and nephews, balancing work and play, cheering others on in their creative pursuits, as well as, kindling joy and seeking goodness in every day life, filled my soul to the brim.
Summer shared its shadows, but mostly, I remember the sunshine. I recall the timely rains, which kept me from having to water the garden or the lawn. I rest in knowing that this was indeed, a happy summer. Leisurely, I relaxed into the present moments.
The fullness of the calendar overflowing with planned and spontaneous activities, motivated me. With school back in session, my pace slowed down, almost, too slow.
I needed a prompt. Something to move me to action.
Of course, I am still getting things done. Laundry, dishes, running, reading, writing in my journal, going to work, eating, breathing, etc. But something was lacking. I am a producer. I am a process artist. I am an inspirational writer. I need to share. I want to be a prompter.
I love to share my adventures. To share the things that inspire me, hoping that others will be prompted to action. To love and goodness, to play and work, to create and to discover. This is why I’m here. So, I’m back with some words, some ideas, some images and some links, and maybe even a few searching questions to keep our souls nourished.
Like this question posed by Kobi Yamada in his book Ever Wonder: Ask Questions and Live into the Answers:
Do you doubt your doubts?
Messages of encouragement from unlikely sources. Have fun, eat a fortune cookie. Write a response to it’s message in your journal, or glue it to artwork.
A fun question from a magazine article. Answer it and share with us in the comments. I would have loved to hang out in the family room of the Brady’s. Their whole house was pretty groovy.
I continue to add something to this same canvas, which I started in January. The canvas is my prompt. I plan to keep at it until December 31st to see where it takes me.
Prepping the pages in my journal for September, gives me something to look forward to each day. Check out this video to get a inside peek of the journal.
Dreaming is free.
