I love being immersed in creativity. Being creative makes me feel good. It gives me a certain energy that I need. Over the years, I have embarked on countless projects, each fulfilling me in a unique way. Most recently, I created my very first dreamcatcher. My heart and soul went into that piece.
Art is something I enjoy talking about. In talking with one of my friends from work, I discovered a wonderful artist full of life and inspiration. Meghan was sure that I would like this particular artist. Visiting the web site of an amazing woman confirmed that. Today Meghan brought me “Taking Flight: Inspiration and Techniques to Give Your Creative Spirit Wings” by Kelly Rae Roberts. It is indeed a lovely book filled with symbolically thoughtful project ideas.
The chapters in the book by Roberts include: Unearthing Buried Dreams; Facing Your Fears; Creating Community; Finding the Sacred in the Ordinary; Honoring Memories; Speaking the Truth; Embracing the Journey; and Places to Fly. After talking to Meghan about the project ideas, she suggested that we get together to create! What a great idea!
The introduction of the book says “I am just like you. A girl who is always learning. A woman whose soul is vibrant with inspiration. A creative spirit that is expressive and sensitive. We are all connected, intertwining in this creative life. It’s because of this that I believe in the power of telling our stories- the stories of how we muster up our courage and leap and dance and breathe our way into our creative dreams. This is how we learn from one another. How we inspire one another. How we begin to finally see the potential and possibilities that live inside our hearts.” Kelly Rae Roberts is awesome!
This creative gem of a book is loaded with inspirational quotes and ways to be inspired. Roberts opened with a Leonardo Da Vinci quote. Ahhh… A quote by the master who said, “when once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” At some point, we must all develop our wings. I think mine have always been there. Sometimes I feel that I will head towards the sky and never return.Explore posts in the same categories: Art, Artists, Bird and Feather Symbols, Books, Connection, Crafts, Creativity, Friends, Hobby, Inspirational, Light, Positive Energies, Quotes, Reflection, Women, Worthy Reads
