‘Silence is more profitable than abundance of speech.’
One thing I have managed to give myself time to do, is to submit a “Found Art Friday” piece to the LOVELY and TALENTED Cathy Nichols. This month the theme is GOLDEN. So I thought the title: “Speech is Silver, Silence is Golden” was perfect. If you have not yet had the pleasure of following Cathy’s blog, check her out, this month she is in Artful Blogging magazine (SO EXCITED FOR HER), I cannot wait to pick up a copy.
‘Speech is Silver, Silence is Golden”.’
So take some time today to sit quietly, be silent, BE GOLD. Enjoy your moment of silent contemplation, soak it up, bask in the golden hue…. as once coined by Frost:
‘nothing gold can stay’…….
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leafs a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
This is lovely and your Etsy store is looking gorgeous! Welcome back my friend
This is *PERFECT* 🙂
It's funny.. i spend so much of my day being silent.. and I love it. Just sitting at my table and painting… When it comes time for me to be around people.. oh it can be such a challenge. I think thoughts and have a communication with them but realize they can't hear what i'm saying!
Artists tend to be more silent and we understand the depth of this. It's needed to go to that place in our heart, and brain, and be able to create from the soul. And I'm with Cori: I talk to myself when I work, both verbally and silently, and forget I need to speak to my customers when I have shows!
