I’ve never used emojis because they don’t always make sense to me.
These I would use all the time.
I was thinking this morning about what I’m often willing to put off until I am: better prepared, thinner, rested, educated, mentored…you name it. What if a formal invitation arrived in the mail to do some of the things I want to accomplish in my lifetime?
I know the invitation is pretty absurd. What are we waiting for though?
Maybe a formal nudge from the Universe is what’s needed now?
Thank you Emily Post Institute (headquartered in Burlington, Vermont) for helping me with the language for my formal invitation from the universe. Here’s the link for your etiquette questions. http://www.emilypost.com/
I always find that when I am in the mood to clean and sort my studio and it brings me joy instead of dread that it’s good for me creatively. It means that I am making room for new possibilities. A little extra real estate. A clean surface with a sketch book and pencil on it just makes me swoon. I don’t know exactly what is coming next, but 5 bags of garbage and 2 bags of recycling out the door is a great way to start a new year.
My husband and I watched an amazing film yesterday.
Jim Jarmusch’s 2013 Film “Only Lovers Left Alive”
I am not usually a big vampire fan, however, Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, John Hurt, Mia Wasikowska are truly a few of the coolest vampires ever on screen.
I loved this movie on so many levels—storytelling, acting, set design (made me swoon), soundtrack, travel (Detroit and Tangiers primarily), fashion and emotion. Just amazing. I grabbed a few photos from IMDB to give you a sense of the film. I also included a few of my own images that show why this film spoke to me so much. Here’s to inspiration…wherever it comes from.
