“You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert

I love Elizabeth Gilbert. She changed my life. I read Eat, Pray, Love when I turned 40 and was inspired to start painting ‘for reals’. Her book and a lot of other things, just seemed to line up before me and make sense to my 40 year old brain.  I know they say, “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear” … I was so ready and I am so grateful I had so many great teachers, Elizabeth being one of the best. If you haven’t read her new book, Big Magic, you should.

Other teachers I am grateful for? Julia Cameron, Eckhart Tolle and Deepak Chopra all played a significant role in making me believe I am an artist and to quieten the voices that would say otherwise.

Thank you.

I leave you with this:
