Good Morning Shine! One more Joyce Hifler today!

Joyce Hifler

“I shall remember the happy things. I shall remember the special persons, the peaceful, tranquil times. I shall live each moment with some joy, seeing the best in everyone, finding fulfillment in the bird’s song, the flowers, the raindrops.”

“The world responds to me as I say “hello” to it, friendly or cheerless, it is mine to mold by second.”

“Regardless of how the past has been, in this moment, this day is mine to live. It contains all the ingredients I need to be happy, if only quietly and thoughtfully within myself, That, after all, is part of the reward for thinking, speaking, and remembering only the joys of the past and present.” What lovely thoughts!

“Since I must walk daily with memories, how much better they be the good ones rather than those best forgotten.”

“Wrote Henry Ware, American divine, “The shaping of our own life is our own work. It is a thing of beauty, or a thing of shame, as we ourselves make it.”

I broke these into sections as she had in her book, that they may be savored likewise.

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is 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
