Thoughts on Art, Inspiration, Creativity and Spirit


Heard On The Blogosphere This Week

Some interesting & amusing thoughts from the blogosphere this week.

How did you feel about the death of Osama bin Laden? Celebratory? Sad and reflective? I found myself with mixed emotions. This post by Susan Piver put into words that which I could not.

The 10 Failures of Donald Trump Remember Trump Vodka? Me either.

You cannot help those who are not ready to receive it: Alyson Stanfield shared an excellent post from her archives reminding us to resist the urge to be fixers. Her focus is on artists but you can easily change the word “artist” to anyone.

Fake quotes? Ever wonder if those quotes you read online were really said by the person that they are attributed to? Here is an interesting case of a comment that morphed into a quote with the whole thing being attributed to MLK.

Monday Reflection

Now, I say to you today my friends,
even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow,

I still have a dream.
It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream
that one day this nation will rise up
and live out the true meaning of its creed:
– ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’

-Martin Luther King, Jr
Speech at Civil Rights March on Washington, August 28, 1963
