I thought you were daring me yesterday and so I went ahead and told about the snake. It was all true and I can't seem to stop thinking about it. Today I just wanted to show the salad spinner. I think I have a new routine of harvesting the lettuce each morning after I have been Walking In Beauty.
You know that is what the snake was all about. Don't you? "With beauty before me I walk.....With beauty around me I walk." For me, my path is so spiritual and I'm realizing that is the tug that takes me out there each morning. It is good.
Last night while watching A Idol, I sat with my huge Klimt book. You know the one. Guess what? Remember I told you that I needed to do what ever it is I do when the flood of inspiration hits me. Well sitting with this book drinking it in is one of those things I do. It is just like when I'm in the "zone" with a painting or doing something else creative. It's like there is a part of my brain that continues to swirl in a magic state of something and has lots of cracks that lets little things drip in and then commingle with other things and then I feel it in the pit of my stomach and my heart and soul. I am going to take your advise and write down these floods of inspiration because as strong as the inspiration is, I lose the passion and forget the inspiration if I'm unable to act on it immediately.
I hope to show you my painting soon. I am slowly making progress. The whole reason I was looking at the Klimt book was to study the closed eye. Many of Klimt's ladies were painted with closed eyes. I haven't done much of that and I especially was looking for one in profile. But as I said, I was drinking it in and I never got to that page.
