Create Something

The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.

–Kurt Vonnegut

Only You Can Do It

You have brilliance in you, your contribution is essential, and the art you create is precious. Only YOU can do it, and you must.

God’s laughter

 God’s laughter emanating from the sky

LAUGHTER CAME FROM EVERY BRICK

Just these two words He spoke
changed my life,

“Enjoy Me.”

What a burden I thought I was to carry–
a crucifix, as did He.

Love once said to me, “I know a song,
would you like to hear it?”

And laughter came from every brick in the street
and from every pore
in the sky.

After a night of prayer, He
changed my life when
He sang,

“Enjoy me.”
(St. Teresa of Avila, 16th century mystic, saint, and Doctor of the Church)

Mary Oliver

My favorite poet is Mary Oliver. Consider this:

“When it’s all over, I want to say: All my life I’ve been a bride married to amazement”–Mary Oliver

Here I am, being married and IN amazement, that I am going to spend the rest of life with the man I adore, my best friend and my rock..

Question: In your life thus far, how have YOU been married to amazement?
