I've had a very creative and productive day so far.
Nevermind I didn't clean a thing; which is what I always start out thinking I'm going to do, and then pick up some odd or end that's been left out and that'll get me thinking and before I know it, I'm ignoring my chores while making a bigger mess from the throes of creation.
That was today's synopsis.
Still, I took short mental health breaks here and there and while doing so I advertised on Craig's List looking for a used tricycle for my Sculptcycle project.
The first is a support blog that highlights and promotes LGBT artists. I can't tell yet if they're local because I didn't notice a location, but I found them through Craig's List Vermont Artist's Discussion Board (at least I think it was Vermont - CL is funny that way).
The second is more of an inspirational site for mixed media artists with challenges, and opportunities to connect and reflect in addition to a weekly featured artist.
One of their challenges is "Leap" in honor of this special day. In response I offer an old but favorite photo of mine, taken at Bolton Pots (potholes) - a popular nearby swimming hole.
What with my seeds arriving and spring around the corner, I can almost taste summer coming. This pic brings it right home.
Jacked from Inspire Me Thursday, because it not only is about this day, but also includes specifically my birthday. I've often used it to remind others of the date.
Thirty days hath September,
April, June and November;
All the rest have thirty-one
Save February, she alone
Hath eight days and a score
Til leap year gives her one day more.
