It’s so important to have things that make you happy. I really believe that. I’m not talking about the thrill of buying something, but of things that when you look at them they lift your spirits, remind you of something or someone special, inspire you with the beauty that can be all around you.
For my birthday, I received an original water color painting that I truly love based on my favorite novel, Persuasion by Jane Austen. Today I purchased the companion piece that the artist painted not long ago. Looking at the first painting inspires me. I know the second will do the same.
As an artist, as a writer, as a person, I can’t express enough how important those little pieces of joy can be or how much inspiration they can cause.
