365 Things That Inspire Me

I also do posts for my clay group, beads-of-clay.org. Twice now, I have posted pictures that I took on walks with my dogs in a park near here, 3 Creeks. I post these as creative inspiration for my fellow artists and jewelry designers. These posts have been so well received that I decided to start a blog with daily inspiration in the form of pictures, quotes and poems. These pictures will be things from my immediate environment that I find inspirational or beautiful; textures, colors, contrasts, animals, unusual things, intriguing things. A daily dose of wonder....

"Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, and of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, THINK on these things."

"Earth's crammed with heaven, and every common bush is afire with God, but only he who sees takes off his shoes."
E.B. Browning

It's all for Joy!

August 30, 2010 The Sanskrit

Salutation to the Dawn

Look to this day, for it is Life,
The very Life of Life.
Within its brief span, lies all the verities,
and realities of your existence.
The Bliss of Growth.
The Glory of Action.
The Splendor of Beauty.
 For yesterday is but a Dream
And tomorrow is but a Vision
But today well lived make every
Yesterday  a dream of Happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this day.

-The Sanskrit
