I've just spent a lovely week-end! Romantic diner with my beloved in a very gay restaurant which was most fun...then sweating in the dance floor with a remix disco sound! Too bad they feel the need to remix it...i simply love disco even before the huge success of "Mamma mia"! In Lisbon, singers like Claude François, Dalila who are icones in France are definitely old fashioned...so i end up dancing alone in my house for a few minutes my friends nodding with compassion....waiting for the real music to come up.
Then we had this very dear friends who came by our house... on sunday and while we girls were chatting endlessly men were preparing the meal! and what a diner it was...a tree stars Michelin.
This friend is an artist who doesn't recognize himself as one. Sad but true...at least for the moment. It's such a waste when one finds many excuses to keeps us apart from our inner self. He's so TALENTED but seems to never find the time to dedicate to his creativity. I suggest him "the artist's way" by Julia Cameron who is truly "the artist's bible". She provides us with so many useful exercices and liberating ones. Our creativity flows if we take the time to just aknowledge that it's there, maybe hidden but still there each layer screaming for freedom.
What does it take to be creative?
What does one need to create?
What prevents us from our true self?
I paint two walls in my kitchen, so we can draw, write whatever we feels ...and here is this beautiful elephant draw by my dear friend, looks a bit sad to me but hey.......who am i to say so!
it's a good omen as his tail his opposite the front door so that means GOOD LUCK.
Hopefully his creativity will reveals itself don't know when but in opinion the "when" is not important what is vital for all of us is truly to let out what we are here for.
TO BE WILLING TO
TO BE BRAVE
TO BE HAPPY NO MATTER WHAT
TO ENJOY THE BLESSINGS OF LIFE...
