An Inspiration Board.

I made this bulletin board a couple of weeks ago with some fabric and ribbon, and it's since been hanging bare above my desk while I thought about how to use it. This morning I decided not to use it as a repository for bills or invitations or anything that's a drag at all. Instead this is to be the place for all the magazine clippings, poems, photos, and artwork that speak to me. It's my real-life Pinterest. I kind of love that it's above my desk, which is where a lot of dry writing has to get done on a daily basis. I hope it will remind me to keep dreaming, creating, and having fun. Also makes me think of a Picasso quote I saw on a painter friend's Facebook page today: “Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.” Nice one, Pablo.
