Without inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant. Today, I take time out to acknowledge the inspiration, encouragement and support I get from artists and those able to move out of other’s shadows to leave their mark on this world. Whilst I’m healthy, the sun’s out, spring is in the air and I can look forward to being creative, I’m happy. I guess happiness does not consist purely of pastimes and amusements but in virtuous activities! With regards to activities, I’m ever so tempted to broadcast my next project. However, patiently I ‘ll wait to announce it sensibly when everything is confirmed and people, venues and opportunities fall into place! This will be in the next week one hopes!! Whatever the outcome, life is all about discovery. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said ‘ We are all inventors, each sailing out on a voyage of discovery, guided each by a private chart of which there is no duplicate. The world is all gates, all opportunities.’ Let’s keep that mindset, exploring further, being not afraid of growing slowly but afraid of standing still. Have a good week exploring!
