"Spring belongs to those who love the heart of spring; they plant seedlings, talk to the trees, and tend to the flowers thirst for rain." This quote is from my perpetual calendar by Flavia.
I read the daily saying each morning and it's a great way to start my day and attend to the present season.
ArtFest brought me into contact with artists from all over the world and US. I met with one of my favorite blog buddies, Lorrie. Shared meals and evenings with PAC sisters Tammy, Debi, Tory, Dayna and Suzanne and the Gussies- Catherine, Celeste and Michelle. Marilyn came from California. Thanks to everyone for making a great experience.
My favorite class was "Story Painting with a Punch" with Gina Armfield. We used our own photographs in our paintings. This six-inch Buddha statue sits on my desk. He reminds me to live in the present, be calm and mindful.
