OMG…yes I just said that. This series of photos came across my facebook stream today and I KNEW I had to share. Can you imagine combining the wisdom of your wise experienced self, with the expression, creativity, and willingness of a child? What could be possible?
You were like this when you were young….before someone told you to stop painting flowers blue and that suns weren’t green. You were free, and wild- un afraid- above no one, beneath no one…independent of the good opinions of others. You were born a creator– it is in you. BE LIKE THIS again!
You explored, you chose colors because they excited you, you made a MASTERPIECE–not a mess! BE LIKE THIS again!
You trusted yourself, you used the whole page –in fact the blank page THRILLED YOU! You took on each blank page like candy, gobbling up the spaces with your marks, and dots, and strokes, and art. BE LIKE THIS AGAIN!
You put your WHOLE self in to each blank page – you made the canvas your bitch– you owned it and you SOLD it knowing your creation was electrifying. BE LIKE THIS AGAIN – – – I dare you!
I KNOW that free soul is STILL THERE! Breathe in the image of this child literally sitting in his art…in his creation. Release any thoughts of mess…and trust the masterpiece in your heart waiting to come back out, and darling, be like this again.
