You may have noticed a new page on my blog. I am sharing some of my artwork, and you can have a copy of something for free!
Or the original for a donation to charity.
I will also take requests for a mixed media piece, also for a donation to charity.
The charities are:
A Rocha UK
I have a new page on facebook. It’s called speak your heart through creativity and I will be reposting beautiful things on topic and also posting some creative ideas for you to have a go at.
What an amazing young woman, fabulous artist, brain the size of a planet… Follow her here:
I really love the hymn “Cornerstone” by Hillsong and it inspired today’s poem and doodle. You can hear the song HERE.
Tethered to your heart.
The knowledge of your love;
The bonds that hold
My head above the water.
All you are,
Is all that matters
In the storms of my mind,
Your light is truth.
I find my way
Through the darkest days
The wisdom of your words
I see your name
Abstract in grey
But you are neither dull
You have beautiful depths
I gaze at you,
You flow into my inner world
Your subtle lines
Of the river on a rainy day.
What secrets do you hold?
How is it you have
To calm the mind
And quieter the spirit?
I leave you
Better than I came.
It has been a busy week, so a number of cool and interesting things have been sitting on my phone ready to read or watch. I finally caught up with them all today and these are the best:
From TED, the most lovely visual performance from Miwa Matreyek described as:
“a gorgeous, meditative piece about inner and outer discovery”
And a thought provoking piece about motivation and apathy from Dave Meslin identifying seven barriers to motivation.
Elsewhere I came across Faith Street which has articles from people of all sorts of faiths, including a lot of christian writers including:
In the Guardian, Katie Carter explains why she loves running so much… I wish I loved it enough to be this motivated!
And back on TED there is a whole list of videos just waiting to inspire us all to better writing. Enjoy 😀
I was in London yesterday doing some work for a charity I volunteer for.
I find it difficult, all the noise and all the people… But there are so many amazing things to see.
But I was in the brick lane area looking for lunch when I came across these. How amazing they they are!
