A place where I play with the the ongoing discoveries and relationship with my personal muse…

It’s just a collage of magazine images on a page in my journal. And yet I am high all day from creating it this morning! I move through the day with awe, optimism, and energy. Art is Magic.
These moments of understanding, epiphany, inner connection, that happen in the art studio, on the kitchen table or curled up with a journal and pens in bed — that’s everything to me!
Recently I attended a lecture on positive psychology and “happiness”. A graph was shown from a study that scientifically measured peoples’ happiness levels throughout the day.
The two activities that topped the chart:
But creating was not even an item on the chart! There was no category for creativity, so they didn’t even measure it. That’s sad.
What I have come to understand is that the mind-body feeling of discovering something through art processes is the best feeling in the whole world for me — greater than the steamiest, connected, deepest sex I’ve ever had in my life — greater than the most delicious, tantalizing bites of food I’ve ever eaten.
