A Portable Mentor
It's no secret around here - I love books! And I have alot of them. They talk to me of places near and far, their words paint pictures in my head inspiring me to find a way to turn those words into art.
This particular one I already had and was prompted to pull it off the shelf last Saturday. I randomly opened a page and it spoke to me. I'm already 1/3 of the way through with lots of underlining and notations.
The 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women by Gail McMeekin
p. 84 "I've had to learn to walk by the weeds, blank out the peeling paint, . . ."
p. 98 "Women have long had the self-destructive habit of discounting themselves and their natural abilities."
I'll be getting more into this gem in the coming days. But I'm off to the Doctor for an exam and I haven't had any coffee yet so I don't want to be late!
