"One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture and, if possible, speak a few reasonable words."
1749 - 1832
While the art we create is important, the life we live is even more important. Every day as the saying goes, we need to smell the roses. What do you do to keep you grounded? To keep your spirit alive? To fill your soul with peace? Do you sing in the shower or a choir? Do you read for 15 minutes or more every day? Do you view the paintings of others? Do you complement the people around you? Do you tell someone you love them?
What have you done today? Have you hugged someone? Have you taken a walk in the park? Did you enjoy the sunrise? Did you eat a ice cream cone? Did you say thank you to someone? Did you help a stranger? Did you kiss your spouse?
Take care of your soul. Nourish it. Fill it with love.
