A Rare Bird

I made this for Think Monday's Lamp challenge and Creative Therapy's catalyst 40 "What's a principle you firmly believe?" One of my favorite artists, Teesha Moore is their host this week, and you can definitely see her influence on this page and, indeed, in a great deal of my art. Here's a poem from a formula called "The Bull Durham Credo" that I used in my writing class.

I Believe

I believe that silliness is a sublime state
I believe we were put on this earth to love each another
I believe that lying is a mortal sin
That necessity is the mother of invention
Creativity can solve anything
And that laughter is the best medicine
I believe that the best time of the day is before the sun comes up
That family is the most important thing
And that people are good
I believe in love at first sight
I believe in Santa Claus and fairies
And I believe that you can fool the world, but not your sister
I believe in art every day
In the healing powers of soup and prayer
And that you can only be happy by making someone else happy
I believe

A gorgeous piece!

And HOORAY for silliness! Its powers are greatly underestimated by most people, I believe...

Quack!

Fun, playful, vibrant, beautiful! And your poem inspired me to want to write one of my own using this formula. I googled "Bull Durham Credo" and found a slew of cool sites filled with writing exercises and prompts! Thank you for sharing!

I believe that you are one talented lady---both with your art and your literary skills! I'm printing both off to share with friends who don't know how to enjoy our cyber-world! Thank you for sharing your talents!

Your work is so amazing, and your colors make me want to get up and sing, or dance or just get up and wiggle... So much fun.
