Life- Let’s Put it into Perspective

I start today in a reflective mood with a very heavy heart, knowing fellow artist Jon Daniel, who I featured on the page and my blog, has passed away. I didn’t know Jon very well, and met him by chance but his positively warm, personable and genuine energy was clear to see, not to mention his talent and appreciation of the arts. It is a sad loss but he will no doubt be remembered and appreciated, particularly by all who were fortunate to meet him.

His passing also reinforces something we all know and need to remember- life is short and precious so pursue your dreams, create lasting memories and live it well! Life certainly is for living and not just surviving.  Pursue your dreams and don’t put ambitions on hold. You’ve been given imagination for a reason so combine it with action and activity. Wishing you all a happy, healthy and enjoyable weekend. Make it count!

Welcome October!

The start of another month which will see me being creative and producing new work. October is already full of disturbing news, from further indications of ethnic cleansing to people being deprived the right  to vote. A sign of the times and indicator of necessary change? My thoughts extend to those effected by last night’s Vegas shootings, as well of those still quietly suffering the aftermath of hurricanes and earthquakes, away from the eyes of this week’s media. This year’s tragedies only show the importance of the relationships, lifestyles and values that make our lives; they are things we too often take for granted. Start your week as you mean to go on, enjoying it to the maximum, celebrating it with those who unquestionably count and capitalising on the opportunities life provides. Life is a one time offer so use it well!
