Find your tribe out walking among the stars.
Change the story and you change perception; change perception and you change the world.
Do you have the courage? Do you have courage to bring forth this work? The treasures that are hidden inside you are hoping you will say yes.
Jack Gilbert – poet/professor
as quoted in Elizabeth Gilbert’s book “Big Magic”
Every day you play with the light of the universe.
Possessing a creative mind, after all, is something like having a border collie for a pet: It needs to work, or else it will cause you an outrageous amount of trouble.
Elizabeth Gilbert, from Big Magic

So write and draw and build and dance and play as only you can.”
“You should always keep yourself firmly grounded … unless you want to fly.”
“I am that which I am seeking.”
Fr. Richard Rohr
