Give Yourself Magic Everyday

October 11, 2010


I have recently had the privilege of spending an afternoon in the presence of the extraordinary artist Marita Dingus. She creates public art from materials that often cannot be recycled. What makes her extraordinary? She is clearly one doing her own thing, listening to her own voice, creating her own magical, artistical life.
As I listened to her speak about her work I was inspired and enriched. A friend had told me: Marita is a lovely person. You meet her and you just feel a sigh of relief/release and go ‘ahhhhhh’. Yes that is true.
If I can enrich anyone else’s life in this way ever I would be very grateful and humbled. On that note, take 15 minutes to watch Elizabeth Gilbert, author of ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ talk about creativity, ( http://www.ted.com/talks/elizabeth_gilbert_on_genius.html).   It is encouraging, relieving and will make you go ‘ahhhhhhhhh’!
