The Fluffy Cardinal - November 10, 2009

"Most people are so busy knocking themselves out trying to do everything they think they should do, they never get around to do what they want to do."

4" x 4" Watercolor

Kathleen Winsor is so right! I knocked myself out for thirty years, doing what I thought I should do. In the last two and a half years, since I picked up my paint brushes again, I feel a whole new bounce in my step and I have a merrier outlook on life! Funny how that works out!

About Kathleen Winsor
American author Kathleen Winsor is best known for the racy historical novel, Forever Amber, which made a huge splash when it was first published in 1944, selling 100,000 copies the first week. It was banned in 14 states for its sexual content. The ensuing debate contributed to the loosening of restrictions that allowed works by
D. H. Lawrence and Henry Miller to be published in the US. Winsor wrote a number of other novels, none as successful. She was born in 1919 and died in 2003.

The quote is so true...and often we are trying to do what someone else wants or thinks we should do. Oh, how much wasted time on things that take us in the wrong direction.

I just posted some art pieces. Let me know what you think.
