Word Roundup, 3.10.17

Hello! It has been a while, hasn't it?! I've had so much to say. And, then, I've had nothing to say. I read this  as I was pondering saying a lot, a little, or nothing at all. So, I think, for a while, I'll let my art tell the story, as I've realized that words have been steadily creeping in.
Therapeutic words.
Sometimes a single word.
Sometimes a short poem.
Sometimes a phrase or movie quote. 
Sometimes I paint the words.
Sometimes I cut and paste the words.
Sometimes I stamp or sew the words.


Elizabeth Gilbert quotes, "...standing in your own truth and walking in you own path".

"The ordinary arts we practice every day, at home, are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest."- Thomas Moore

"Be grateful for the sanctuary within you..."-Elena Brower

"Life is very heavy to me and it is so light to you."- Unbearable Lightness of Being


Be Still. Be Steady. Be True.

"Let's never come here again, because it would never be as much fun."- Lost in Translation

"I like to think about the life of wine.How it's a living thing. I like to think about what was going on the year the grapes were growing; how the sun was shining; if it rained. I like to think about all the people who tended and picked the grapes. And if it's an old wine, how many of them must be dead by now. I like how wine continues to evolve, like if I opened a bottle of wine today it would taste different than if I'd opened it on any other day, because a bottle of wine is actually alive. And it's constantly evolving and gaining complexity. That is, until it peaks, like your '61. And then it begins its steady, inevitable decline. And it tastes so fucking good."- Sideways 

Forgive.

Believe in You.

Home. Peace of mind. Fresh start. Wild wonder. This is real. Believe.

These words tell a story. And there are more chapters to come.  Have a great weekend!  Juli
