Ah November! when glorious Earth shouts a last hurrah!
and beauty fades to a more tattered and well-worn form.
when whoosh! leaves abandon trees
and the wind in a blustery whirl bites cheeks I'll sit by the fire contemplating and dreaming of what is past and what is to come
and hope for life's miracles to reveal themselves.
Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence. Day after day he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation.
My Blogging Business Artisans team sets forth a new Challenge every month. The purpose is to encourage us to explore our creativity, to stretch our imaginations. Perhaps we are re-working something we've done in the past or still do. Perhaps we're making something entirely new. It's always fun to see how others interpret the Challenge!
The Blogging Business Artisans team Challenge for the month of November was created by me. November is a time of changes. In much of the Northern Hemisphere, the weather turns colder and we begin to look inward. Through your art, express what this means to you. I am inspired by beauty in the world-- and relationships. Instead of being specific, I am encouraging myself to reflect and letting my imagination run and my dreams percolate. I am hoping for renewal of spirit and mind. QUESTIONS: What inspires you? What renews your spirit? How do you reflect?
Breast cancer is such a serious, scary illness affecting many women--and men--across the globe. Too many of my friends have been diagnosed with this devastating disease. This issue has become close to my heart. Because of this, and wanting to give to the cause, I created a tie dye shirt for my etsy shop. A portion of the sales of my Charity Pink T shirt goes to breast cancer research.
Autumn is giving lavish birth beguiling me with its wild mirth!
My Blogging Business Artisan team on etsy hosts a new Challenge every month. The purpose is to encourage us to explore our creativity, to stretch our imaginations. Pam of Magdalene Knits gave us the following Challenge for the month of October:
"There are so many delightful and frightful topics for October. A time when there is a change in the air, fresh pumpkins, donuts, apple picking, pumpkin patches, and a time of 'bewitching!' I have so many wonderful memories of these. Share your October memories."
