Thoughts - August 21, 2016

"We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is,
knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out."
Ray Bradbury.
Do you ever wonder where 'that' thought, piece of art, comment, poem, sentence, etc., came from...especially if it was you saying or doing the thing?! Sometimes we surprise ourselves. Yet if we are consistently filling ourselves with good reading, observing or making art, spending time with interesting people, studying a variety of subjects, immersing ourselves in the wonder of the natural world, then the cup is always filled to the brim. It takes effort as well as talent. And when the time comes to "tip ourselves over", let us hope it is the beautiful stuff which flows out, mixed with our own unique perspectives. - Beth Almond Ford
