for wonder defines the path of discovery"

Thoughtful Tuesday




"Being an artist means: not numbering and counting, 
but ripening like a tree, which doesn't force its sap, 
and stands confidently in the storms of spring, 
not afraid that afterward summer may not come. 
It does come. But it comes only to those who are patient, 
who are there as if eternity lay before them, 
so unconcernedly silent and vast.
 I learn it every day of my life, learn it with pain I am grateful for: 
patience is everything!"

-Rainer Maria Rilke from Letters to a Young Poet

Thoughtful Sunday


"Being artful is pouring your soul into it.
When we’re giving our best, we’re artistic.
When we’re intentionally making something 
more beautiful, more understandable, 
more accessible, we’re artistic.
When we reach below the surface
and bring something thoughtful forward, 
we’re being artistic. 
It’s happening all the time. "
