Hello and welcome to my new blog, Beginnings! I'm so excited to be sharing with you what inspires me, my latest ventures into music, art and all of its facets, as well as anything that I believe will be of value to you in your creative journey.
As an empty nester, I have entered a New Cycle in my life, where I'm following my curiosity and exploring new vistas in my creative life, and I'm excited to share that with you!
So, Fresh Starts and Fun Avenues are in store.
I plan to share more art demo videos, more music that I compose for the piano that comes from my Connection with Spirit, and more insights into my creative practice and life. My aim is to inspire you with your own creativity. Perhaps what I share will give you some new ideas to run with that suit you at this time in your life, wherever that may be.
I know that I love being inspired myself. I love looking at good art, fun illustration, great design, vibrant color, and listening to music that gives me something to ponder or reflect on, sometimes in my journal.
So, where are you beginning? Are you looking to express yourself in some way and feel like you just can't find the time?
Are you starting a new venture and are looking for encouragement along the way?
Perhaps you now have an empty nest like me, and want to explore new avenues that you've put off until now?
Well, traveling and journeying together on this creative path just makes it more fun, doesn't it? I know I love creating after I've engaged with other creatives, or watched some inspiring art videos, or listened to some music that makes me want to go play my piano!
I'm here to Celebrate with you; your beginnings are important. Whatever life cycle you are presiding in, let's share the ins and outs and the in between.
And remember, there are no mistakes, Just valuable learning along the way.
Each sentence you write, each mark you make on the canvas or paper, each pot you throw, each dance you choreograph, each song you compose, each meal you cook, each vegetable you grow are all new Beginnings. And I would love to hear about them!
I'll share with you and you are welcome to share with me.
Because Beginnings are Worth Celebrating!
Here's to Beginning anew!
