Inspiration Sandwich

1. 4.

“This Book contains Food For Your Soul” reads the inside cover. Followed by a Table of Contents with the heading … “ How to Be an Artist” which is a cleverly clad inspiring list of edicts… beginning with Stay Loose, followed by more specific instructions like Laugh A lot, Get Wet, Make friends with freedom, Hug Trees all the way to Write Love Letters.

This book was a gift to me from my cousin 10 years ago and it’s still a favorite that I return over and over again. Funny thing is she gave it to me when I was attending her college graduation.

Her inscription reads,

“As you nourish others with inspiration, be fed herein. Savor the feast of creativity & color.”
