five things

After today, there are only five crosses left to make. To that end, I’m listing five things I’ve learned or come to appreciate more than ever this past year.

  1. Ideas are infinite and come from the ethers. Be open to receive.
  2. Simple is difficult but worth the effort.
  3. Let it go. Move on.
  4. Cheap brushes and paints aren’t worth the frustration they will soon cause.
  5. I could make cloud art every day.

Water will not flow from a faucet that is not connected to its source. -Mary Morrissey

How difficult it is to be simple. -Vincent van Gogh

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price has faded from memory. -Aldo Gucci

Clouds on clouds, in volumes driven,
Curtain round the vault of heaven.
-Thomas Love Peacock
