Lucia has something to say

And She Said Yes

In a moment of synchronicity. I found her art. She sells on Etsy. Regalos Del Sol. I bought these 2 pieces immediately. And love them. I asked her to do a piece with the image of Carmen Miranda I use on my blog. She said yes. I told her I wanted to learn and adapt the technique. And she said yes.

Have you ever looked at the people around you. And thought. The stars must have fell from the sky. The stars. Must have fell. From the sky. If I look around. At my friends. There are the stars. Sparky can knit two pairs of socks a day. And make stunning jewelry from simple jump rings. Happy is a magnificent weaver. Sneezy writes mystery novels. Pooky is a sculptural knitter. I am blessed with wonderful and talented friends (who no doubt are happy that these names brewed up for blogland aren't their real names...except for Sparky...because, well, she's known as Sparky.)

I have enough living to do. For two lives. One in which I'd work and travel. And the other in which I'd make art. It makes me sad that I can't do both. Full time work. Can be difficult. In that it leaves little time and space. For starshine.

How true. Full time work sucks the life out of most. I hope you'll remember and make lots of art after you retire. :)


Peace,

I agree that full time work is a life sink. It's just to hard to find time to do much else.

These are wonderful.

Etsy is one of my favorite sites. I collect little wooden boxes, and I can always find something unique there.

Oh, I'm the same way! I dream of the day when I can ditch the full time job and do fun creative things with more of my time.

Those are great pieces. And I agree with jen, it does seem that you manage to squeeze a lot in!

Yeah, I would tend to agree---you do more of "the good stuff" than most people I know---because it matters to you and you make it a priority. That's the only way to do it, I am convinced.

Art rules.

Yay I just love the way you describe things. It fills me with joy. You are lucky to have friends like starry skies. And they are lucky to have you!

There is art in how you live your life. Art in how you see the world. Though I appreciate the need for time to create your own art, find your own expression. Here's to time. And stars around us.
