There is always time to seek those small instances in every life that makes it grow. Anyone can pinpoint a certain time or place that has served as the turning point to stretch the mind and thinking past that small beginning.
The ways to grow without number if the person is alert and tuned into them. There are rich ideas in the simplest of conversations, beauty in sunrise and a sunset, and understanding in a handclasp if only we tap that great potential and move out of the vacuum that seem to hold us.
We must be watchful for opportunities. We must seek beyond our small personal desires to find anything of lasting value. When we seek only to satisfy ourselves, we become stagnant and sooner or later fall into a pattern of existing without purpose.
Happy Fourth of July, I send the best of wishes out to you! Pejj

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.”
Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
