TGIF: Gratitude for No Words

Last night I had the opportunity to take a Mixed Media Art Class at a local shop.  It was so much fun, I didn't want to stop working on my piece.  Even, this post a little later than usual.  (I am sorry about that.)  One of the things I am discovering about myself this summer is that I need to spend some time with my spirit and the Spirit of the Universe without words.  Don't get me wrong, I love words.  I love to write.  [See, I'm doing that right now. :-)]  In fact, I think this love of words has kept me from learning how much I love the language of my hands.  My canvas is not gorgeous, fine art, or even close to complete.  What it is, is a part of myself expressed out to the world in a way that gives more multitude of meaning than words can do.  I am truly grateful for this discovery!

...she got better and better at getting there: The Land of No Words."  --Stephanie Kallos

  • My belief has always been that it is the image, the power of the image, whether created with words, music, dance, painting (any form of creative expression) is both therapeutic and spiritual.
    One of my favorite quotes:
    “I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for”.
    Georgia O’Keeffe
