Well…long time no posts, I’d say. Time for me to start again. Amazingly 2016 is already almost two weeks old!!! Man, I had a great time. The highlight was of course traveling to Toronto, to see the Walker Boys and we all had a great time together. Did not bring the camera this time so no new pics there. I am using some older images of snowy weather. We have some decent snow here finally.
Anyhue, Universe Sketcher tagged me for the Three Quote Challenge. Now I have done this before but since The Sketcher has such a marvelous blog that spreads so much artistic knowledge and inspiration in the most creative way, I was honored by his request…I am all to happy to oblige and start my blogging year with three quotes that mean a lot me and I hope will inspire you too.
And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been.
-Rainer Maria Rilke
I love welcoming a New Year, making plans, looking a little critical at last year and on what to improve on. My New Year resolutions will not differ much from last year’s…stay in the here and now, being kind to Mother Earth and her inhabitants, keep on developing creative skills.
Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.
And I will have to develop some discipline. I have too many projects that are not finished..not my style!!! And I need some discipline in using my sketchbook (love it more and more…) and yes…physical excersise!! Thou shall not stay fit by hiking alone!! Swimming and rowing have been added to keep up strength and general good health. ( and I will do my best not to whine about it ;0))
Everything has been done before…but not by me!
I know, I know, I have said so many time before: but this is my absolute life’s motto, applicable to all areas of life and it gives me great joy and motivation every time I think about this!
As always when I am challenged…I do not tag other bloggers but I would LOVE to see some volunteers!!
Love and Liefs, Johanna
Ps Ik was een tijd weg maar nu weer terug hoor. T hoogtepunt van mijn afwezigheid was natuurlijk t bezoek aan de Walker Boys in Toronto. Nu weer aan slag vol nieuwe plannen en goede voornemens: ik begroet elk Nieuw Jaar altijd met veel enthousiasme! (Ik ben wel verbaasd dat t al bijna 2 weken oud is…) Mijn voornemens zijn eigenlijk altijd t zelfde maar dit jaar voeg ik wat meer discipline en lichamelijke beweging er aan toe…en ik zal mijn best doen er niet over te mopperen;0)
