We all know and love people who can see a new way of doing something. Those people who see a rainy day and turn it into a party or a masterpiece painting.
It’s my belief that we all have that ability inside of us … the ability to charm happiness during a blizzard or to find a rainbow during a depression. Whether we choose to invoke those powers is another thing.
I love being around ‘those kind of people’ don’t you? They raise my spirits and offer an inside look at new possibilities. Humor also delights me. I enjoy when someone can turn words around and give me pause before I laugh.
So last month when I was driving along on a dreary December day, I came across this garage. Someone took something bland and ugly and turned it into art. What fun it was for me to stop my car and hop out to take photos! And what a delight for the person across the street who now has the opportunity to look at a white tulip all year long instead of a dull concrete wall!
Art takes shape in so many ways – through flavors, colors, designs, sounds, words and so much more! I’d love to see what art has crossed your path lately.
So, now it’s time to get busy appreciating. If you have some art to share, send it my way!

I try to do something each day, so this year I’ve committed to sharing at least a little. I’ve started a new venture to prove it. http://createaday2014.wordpress.com/
So far so good – day 4 coming up. Only 361 to go 😉
have found my ability to create brings joy to so many…trying to use it more this year…
Such a beautiful addition to the neighborhood! The entire garage is a pretty great work of art…
happiest of new year wishes to you marge!!
It really is a lovely addition to the dreary day, isn’t it? I’ll bet it’s priceless when the sun is shining on it!
If you need me to push you, hold your hand or gently remind you – let me know!
Your art is so beautiful, colorful and creative! I know this year will be something really special for you!
Hi Maxi – for some people that power includes getting up in the morning. For others it’s building a skycraper. For me, it’s putting words down and making them dance and sing and come alive in all kinds of ways!
What a lovely cure for the winter blahs!
