I believe that imagination….

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge – myth is more potent than history – dreams are more powerful than facts – hope always triumphs over experience – laughter is the cure for grief – love is stronger than death” ~ Robert Fulghum

Room For Happiness

The piece that I’m currently working on right now was inspired by my friend Andrea’s bedroom (ok, I know that may sound odd) and the song “Room For Happiness” by Kaskade featuring Skylar Grey: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wv-jzv4AsDo……. “Don’t be fooled by your emptiness, there’s so much more room for happiness”…..beautiful music, beautiful voice and beautiful lyrics.

Room For Happiness
Room For Happiness

“We begin from the recognition that all beings cherish happiness and do not want suffering. It then becomes both morally wrong and pragmatically unwise to pursue only one’s own happiness oblivious to the feelings and aspirations of all others who surround us as members of the same human family. The wiser course is to think of others when pursuing our own happiness.”
Dalai Lama

Van Gogh

Thank you to Anthony Tooton for suggesting that I watch this great footage: “Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith on their book “Van Gogh: The Life” (http://www.charlierose.com/view/interview/12080) Van Gogh, @ age 27, started a 10 year career of painting.The paintings we know him by were painted in 4 years, and the great masterpieces in 2 years. The last 70 days of his life, he produced 70 pieces.
