Fruit does not ripen to say
Look at me!
but to honor nature’s
compelling demand.
A true artist does not make art
to impress
but to honor what is hers
by the Creator’s hand.

A Spiritual Thing


For all who would make
their life a work of art:
open yourself to inspiration;
share in creation;
release to the universe;
weave love into all.
When these become
your practice,
know that it is
a deeply spiritual
thing you do.
