An Artist's Quest

One Day

This is a drawing I did on my I pad of the picturesque cows sauntering through the Ranch back property.

“Til the Cows Come Home” drawn on my iPad

One day – a whole unit neatly marked by sunrise and sunset, by mockingbird and great horned owl.  One day to work and rest and play. One day to be who we need, want, hope to be. One day to bow and remember, acknowledge and honor. One day – One day – One day.

I was inspired this week by a poem I found (below) on a new app I found from the Poetry Foundation. You can load it on your smart phone or tablet and spin it like a slot machine at the casino, but without the smoke and shabby sense of shame, and instead of a row of cherries and coins you hit the jackpot every time with a poem to read!  Check it out, take a spin you might be inspired too http://www.poetryfoundation.org/mobile/

One Day -By Robert Creele

One day after another—

Perfect.

They all fit.

    Lisa – this is fabulous and I can’t wait to take your class in October.

    Thx for the info on the Poetry App, which I’ve just downloaded. I was educated at boarding schools in England, where literature (Shakespeare etc.) and poetry played a major part in my education and I’m sad that neither of my two children or my grandchildren have been exposed to this important part of our culture.

    Are you by any chance holding a class in encaustics in early June? I’m flying down from Portland to visit my son and his family who live in Sebastopol.

    What a lovely way to be reminded to treasure each day that dawns! And the poetry app you suggested is terrific. I loaded that baby right up. Thank you for providing such inspiring notions and highlighting an inspired way to spread the artist’s light — “without the smoke and shabby sense of shame”! So perfectly written, Lisa. Loved it.
