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?
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.
