“Before you were born I carried you under my heart. From the moment you arrived in this world until the moment I leave it, I will always carry you in my heart.” -Mandy Harrison
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” ― John Muir
Happy Sunday wanderers. I'm listening to this interview with Austin Kleon on Creative Live. He mentions Elizabeth Gilbert and her idea of genius being more of the Greek concept of the muse. I love this idea of thoughts visiting you if you give them space in your daily practice. He also mentions an interview she did with Tom Waits. Tom would often get great ideas while he was driving. He would look up kind of frustrated and say, "Hey can't you see I'm driving". I'm looking forward to finding this interview.
Listening : Creative Live
Reading : Just wrapped up Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert recently - so good.
Adventuring : Mike and I drove from San Francisco to San Diego along the coast earlier this week. We took the time to create some beautiful images and try out new techniques along the way.
Dreaming of : Looking to get some good news for my dad at the doctors this week.

“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, "This is what it is to be happy.” ― Sylvia Plath
