What she said

Words of wisdom from down under this morning:

Life beats down and crushes the soul.
Art reminds you that you have one.

Stella Adler

Amen to that. I'm finding art very healing. It's as if I've discovered a truer true me, and I'm so grateful.

ooh, I like it. Tywla Tharp says, "Art is the only way you can run away without leaving home."

Who wrote the one you quoted?

my blogger friend Kel - her link is right under the quote.

Love that running away idea SL! :D

And Mare - your art is SO beautiful, I can see it lighting up the sky in Inkster all the way from here girlfriend!

Kel said...

oops - the actress Stella Adler said this, not me :)

Heidi Renee said...

Well dear, I've read your writing long enough to know you could have penned those words! :D I will give credit where credit is due though - thanks Kel!

Heidi said...

I love that!! Is that also why I wrote so much poetry while I was hurting so much? Of course. :o)

Heidi Renee said...

Yes Heidi, I agree, and I think why your knitting and purses are so beautiful - because it comes from your deep, rich soul.
