|A box full of Mexico.|
This is it. The BIG day. 500 posts ago, this blog came into being. I had no idea the journey it would take me on. Certainly no idea it would bring me here with all of you. Putting myself 'out there' into the 'big wide world' of the internet was a little scarry. I felt a little exposed. Half expected myself to quit because I didn't like it. I had read somewhere at the time the average person who begins a blog quits in less than 90 days. That category felt comfortable.
It didn't happen. Here I am, 500 posts later. This blog has changed incredibly. It has grown into a wonderfully comfortable space where I am able to share my art, creativity and a little of myself with other like minded people. Talent beyond anything I could have imagined exists out here in blog land. Like minded people attract other like minded people. Bonds are formed, friendships carved out of thin air. Life time connections are made. People in the land of blog are incredibly giving. They share their knowledge, pass on their techniques, give their time, and above all share their joy and passion for what they do. Incredible when you think about it. I'm proud to be part of that. It warrants a celebration.
I especially want to thank you. Thank you all for being here. Thank you for popping in for a visit. Thank you to all those who leave their magical words of encouragement on these pages. Thank you to those who have become my friends. Thank you to so many who give me daily inspiration to grow my creativity, to expand my art and try new things.
So .. today ... please make sure you are signed in as a friend of this blog. Please leave a comment. Tomorrow I will draw one name from the goblet. I have put together a very amusing, very Mexican box of goodies which hopefully will inspire you. It's full of colour, and sunshine and life. It's full of "Mexico". So ... help me celebrate. Good luck.
“There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress, and we would be forever repeating the same patterns.” — Edward de Bono
“The highest prize we can receive for creative work is the joy of being creative. Creative effort spent for any other reason than the joy of being in that light filled space, love, god, whatever we want to call it, is lacking in integrity. . .

“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.” –Osho
