Do not forget to play in life and really enjoy it.”    —Eileen Caddy

I believe that creating art is about play and having fun.  Today’s art is “Over the Mountains Across the Plains to Grandma’s House we Go.”  This is a playful piece depicting the family driving cross country to visit Grandma in Florida.  It is available for sale in the Espirational Gallery.

She must be lured in with the playful and gentle.”

“This is the real secret of life—

to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now.

And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.”

When fun gets deep enough, it can heal the world.” —the Oaqui

When I decided to do a little tracking on this quote it led me to the world of Bernie De Koven and Deep Fun and A Playful Path.  Bernie has passed, but I’m so glad he brought his sense of fun and play to this world.  So go visit the websites and have fun!

Be Grateful

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

 

“Most of us never stop to consider our blessings;

rather,

we spend the day only thinking about our problems.

But since you have to be alive to have problems,

be grateful for the opportunity to have them. “

 

–Bernie Siegel
