Creative First Aid

The people, places, things, books, music, websites and odds and ends that inspire me to turn off tv and turn on imagination, to get off my couch and get creative. Visit my personal blog at www.fridaville.com.
Do stuff. be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. stay eager.

―Susan Sontag

Using the Hi Tec C gel pens that I found at TokyoPenShop.com makes me feel like I write better. Anything that works!

If Wendy and Lucy played at a theater near me, it must have been in the middle of the night because I never saw it advertised. I finally rented it and am so glad I did. Michelle Williams’ performance will haunt you.

I want to pull this chair up to a table and have a seat. I feel like a deep conversation could take place. Visit it at Mary Gregory’s etsy shop.

Have compassion for everyone you meet
even if they don’t want it. What seems conceit,
bad manners, or cynicism is always a sign
of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen.
You do not know what wars are going on
down there where the spirit meets the bone.

All of Charlene Mullen’s work is remarkable, but this piece is one of my favorites. And her website is charming!

It’s hard to pick just one of the images from The Mincing Mockingbird, and I’m as in love with the titles as the prints themselves.
