happy happy birthday to resa
costumer and designer extraordinaire
you are an amazing talent
telling stories with your styles
making real life connections
between people in the realm of blogs
may you never stop creating art gowns, finding meaningful art in murals,
and being an incredibly creative and inspiring part of our story.
hello too from our whimsical blog circle who keep crossing paths:
gigi, dale, and holly –
art, poetry, nature, animals, peace, kindness, love, humor, style, stories –
compassionate creatives all.
“creative expression is not just a means of getting attention, although some have approached art that way. think of art as a way of connecting, of sharing your insights with others.”
i love that someone has created a poster
with some of our more interesting twists and turns
and wonder about the mindset
of the road planning engineers.
were they perhaps going for
more of an ‘artsy’ and unexpected approach to the roads?
more like the road of life?
“life is full of surprises and serendipity. being open to unexpected turns in the road is an important part of success. if you try to plan every step, you may miss these wonderful twists and turns. just find your next adventure – do it well, enjoy it, and then, not now, think about what comes next.”
-Condoleezza Rice – Former U.S. Secretary of State
Every fall in Osijek, Croatia – Nikola Faller, academic sculptor and Osijek land artist, creates this magic.
Her drawings are made by raking leaves.
“every photographed object is merely the trace left behind by the disappearance of all the rest.
it is an almost perfect crime,
and almost total resolution of the world,
which merely leave the illusion of a particular object shining forth,
the image of which then becomes an impenetrable enigma.”

you realize what an amazing vision of the world they had
“architecture is not such a knowledge form, but a form of knowledge.”
