dreams + vincent

April 26, 2010

I wanted to share these little nibbles of wisdom today from none other than the lovely Impressionist genius (and amateur ear surgeon), Vincent Van Gogh. His words are helping me dream.

“For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.”

“What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?”

“If you hear a voice within you saying, ”You are not a painter,” then by all means paint… and that voice will be silenced.”

“I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.”

“But I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things.”

As I begin to allow myself the wild freedom to dream and imagine without doubts or limits, I am seeing that making delicious, wholesome food and sharing it with those I love is where I come alive. It is indeed how I love.

What makes you come alive? How do you show your love?

(This painting is my favorite.)

    Well, I’ve wondered if you and I are kindred spirits, Caroline – and now I know.

    @ Linda!

    I am so pleased it has finally been confirmed. 🙂 Hopefully, we are still going to have that baking date!
