One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song,
read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were
possible, to speak a few reasonable words.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I do love Sunday's, it is a time to relax, let your hair down
and for one day forget all the worries and the problems.
A day to settle my brain, give thinking a break and just enjoy.
I love to spend time with some of the elderly people
in my neighborhood. Have a cup of tea and listen to their
stories. We live in such a hectic world so it is a good thing
to take a trip down memory lane.
Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.
Do you like to hear stories from elderly relatives or friends?

Normally I start out my Sunday posts with a photo I had taken and a quote. Well this Sunday I decided to do something different.
My blog has always been about the happier side of life, well things are not always that way. I have decided to come clean, to be honest.
I have been an artist all of my life, from the time I could hold a
crayon my parents paid for lessons. They encouraged my work to a point. I was told art is a hobby and not a career. Well, along the way I have found that art is a way of life, whether I was folding
baby clothes or cooking.
I just never felt I had enough time to work. Do you feel that way?
To be honest, I thought, if I were a man and art was my career,
I could go to my studio every day and come home in the evening.
Everyone would accept that, right? As a woman, my career as an artist came second to being a mother and working outside the home.
To get to the point, here I sit, my children are grown up, I have
all the time in the world to produce and yet I do nothing, or
very little. It's not for lack of ideas, they seem to come day and
night. I haven't a clue why I am not working. Any suggestions?
So back to Quiet Reflection Sunday. I love taking pictures and I love encouraging quotes. I generally select a quote that inspires
me at the time. So I have one for today, hoping it will encourage
me to work, and maybe you too.
