True North

I don't know whether you can read this but it's basically a quote by Georgia O'Keefe.  She said that she came to the conclusion in 1923 "I found myself saying to myself...I can't live where I want to.......I can't go where I want to........I can't do what I want to....I can't even say what I want to.  I decided that I was a very stupid fool not to at least paint as I wanted to do.....that seemed to be the only thing I could do that didn't concern anybody but myself."   I guess that was what it took for her to create the beautiful flowers and bone paintings that she did.  I would just like to have more time to create what I want to!!  Diane


  1. I'm with you, I'd just like to get back to creating! LOL
    Thank you Diane for the lovely tag. That was so sweet of you to think of me! and its so pretty. I'll post it on my blog soon.
    hugs Lynn

  2. That's a lovely page Diane. I saw a rerun of Oprah last nite with Toni Morrison who said that her writing was her own thing that she could do where no one told her how to do it or when to do it. Everyone needs their own space and their own passion where they can create to their heart's content. Have a beautiful day! Tammy

  3. Amen to that!!! I'm still trying to find a way to get time to multiply rather than subtract ;)

    I hope mew had a good weekend! Purrhaps, this week you will find some small niche of time to create????
