Where’s there’s creativity, there’s hope. Self expression is like opening the curtains and letting the light shine in. It teaches you who you are, and oxygenates your thoughts. Go create something…anything. Find your medium…and find yourself.
We can’t live yesterday and today at the same time.
Some rooms just ooze class; whether it’s in the furnishings, the layout, the way the sun filters in during the afternoon, or the way the moonlight slips through at night. It’s so easy to recognize interior beauty when the exterior grandeur is on point, and this room exemplifies that premise. An incredible view, revealing magnificent snowy peaks, serves as a backdrop to a space replete with class, character, and charm. Bring on the whiskey, coffee, and whatever else you’ve got. Let the daydreams commence.
Light your fire, grab your coffee (or wine), snag your book…and cozy up to the warmth of this week’s great wintry space.
In honor of the upcoming re-release of legendary director Andrei Tarkovsky’s final film, The Sacrifice, here are a few short videos (and selected trailers) worth your time. Enjoy.
Below are The Sacrifice and Stalker trailers, and excerpts from interviews with Tarkovsky regarding perspectives on life, youth, and artistic spirituality.
We all know, for the most part, where we’d like to be in life. What we’d like to be doing. Goals. Dreams. Ambitions. Having the end product visualized is the easy part…putting in the hard yards in between is the true test. I hope that you can realize and tap into your own inner strength today…it’s waiting for you. Stay creative.
Just a reminder to stay fresh when you feel some wilting coming on; let's not forget or neglect the importance of recharging our own batteries. Thank you for reading, and best of days to you.
Have you ever questioned your purpose? I know I have. I’m guessing that we’ve all had those moments at some point on our respective journeys. But you know what? Our purpose is to be here…to live, and each day that we’re gifted is another opportunity to live fully. Let’s enjoy the journey and appreciate the adventure, and remember that each day has its own meaning. It’s all a blessing.
Sometimes you need to just stop what you’re doing, take a few deep breaths, and look up at the sky. Let its colors cleanse the palette of your mind. Put down the phone (unless you’re using it to read this post, wink wink), close the laptop, turn off the computer…or the TV…and relax. Unplug. It tends to put things into perspective for me…maybe it will for you too. Best of days to you all, and thank you for reading.
