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!

Sept 16 2010 The Hurt

Sometimes pain can be inspiring too...

The Hurt

All I can remember is
the sky was dull & gray
electric lights were vainly trying
to keep the dark away
there was no good or evil
a nothing much was now
my eyes rained tears unsalted
as my brain was just a cloud;
I looked into the mirror
and saw old woman's eyes,
they never said a word to me
I never asked them why.
now the sun is shining
the lights have dimmed and died;
but there's a hole somewhere inside me
long and deep and wide.

-S G Newland
