Creative

The recital
The recital

To be creative means to be in love with life.  You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.

~ Osho

Have you ever spun around and around until you feel dizzy?  Gosh, I hope so, at least as a child.  I’m feeling a little like that now.  It’s been a whirlwind trip that has included a good dose of family and friends.  It’s a good kind of dizzy.  The kind that makes you smile and laugh.

There is so much activity going on that I don’t know where to start.  A day- and evening-long dance recital (broken up into six shows).  Time with my granddaughters and their parents.  Playing in a sandbox.  Hiking in a beautiful park with a friend.  A big, fat, delicious Mexican lunch.  A tour in search of whimsy.  Good conversations.  Dinner and just hanging out with family.

I’ve taken a lot of terrible photos along the way, but like them anyway because they are reminders of fun, of family, of nature, of life.

Today will be full, too.  I am grateful to have a little quiet time this morning.  Just enough to do a little yoga, meditate, and recharge before I get going again.

Thank you for dropping by today.  What have you been up to lately?  Have you gone on any adventures, big or small?  I hope all is well.

Regular blogging and visits to your blogging neighborhood will resume this weekend, perhaps.  In the meantime, be good, be kind, be loving.  Just Be.  🙂

  1. I so like the creative quote. To be in love with life! Yes! (Except on those days when we’re not…) Loved your photos, Robin. Especially of the twirling dancing one.

  2. I think I’ve spun around until I was dizzy. But it was so long ago I can’t be sure. Now I’m just dizzy because I’m tired. Katie and I went on an adventure last weekend but I haven’t had time to tell you all about it yet. Trucking issues overwhelm at the moment.

  3. Those are wonderful photos, Robin, and I love your new header. What an intriguing photo of the sun. You might enjoy Robert Bauval’s newest with a photo like that. Beautiful photo of your granddaughter dancing. I hope you frame it for her. Just lovely. So happy to see all is well with you, Safe travels, WG
