“Eeeeee!” Thalia squealed. “A full size sheet of paper today.”
“Drawist… errr Paintist… ummm Typist? Our girl has an idea that involves a big tree — and US!” Calliope held high hopes for what would appear on the blank page. Her quiet wish was that she not look like Peppermint Patty. (Charles Shulz’s PP is grand, but she’s already taken.)
“Let’s help Typist make her dream come true. If she wants us on a t-shirt, we need vision and good art.” Thalia wiggled her fingers and twirled her wrists, then she touched her toes and reached for the sky. “Let’s get cracking!”
“Know what Picasso said?” Nia asked… and answered herself. “Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.”
Words from Typist:
It’s true… I want the muses on t-shirt, even if I’m the only one wearing it. 😂
I drew a Storyteller Oracle card this morning as a self-reflection instigator. This is what I pulled:
FORTUNE: We cannot always know what lies ahead, but signposts and serendipitous events can bring timely reminders of life’s magic just when we need it. Cherish these moments, miracles are happening. Keep your mind open to the synchronicities and magic of every day.
Where do you find your daily reminders of life’s magic all around us?
I am finding life’s magic everywhere.
This morning in three separate places (Jesus Calling calendar, Loving What Is by Byron Katie, and Simple Treasures by Sarah Ban Breathnach) I received the same reminder — synchronicity!
We are not disturbed by what happens to us, but by our thoughts about what happens.
Now I better get busy with that drawing — before I let my thoughts talk me out of it!
"Serendipitous events"-- Woah. How, um, serendipitous. On Saturday, I picked up Byron Katie's book from the library--had just heard about it. I probably won't open it for a while, but I will look for the magic inside!
T-shirt: “Bad case of kleptomania? You should take something for it!” 😁
I haven’t done anything with t-shirts since a well-intentioned but less-than-successful computer-printed iron-on in the 1980s, but based on what I see in public, I am guessing that to design, upload, and order items must be fairly easy these days.
Looking forward to the results!
