ARTMAKING

“Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art.”

— Maya Angelou

I live my life creatively by writing my blog and writing poetry this is truly my outlet to express myself. Even as a child I would write a note to whoever I was mad at to let them know instead of telling them face to face. Confrontation is just not my thing never has been and I suspect it never will be.

When it comes to poetry Maya Angelou has always been one of my favorites writers. The adventures I take are solely in my mind and I release them in writing, but those are not really published for the world to see. Some would say it’s too dark some would say it too fairytale like.. depends on my mood I guess.  That is what you call creative prerogative (insert Bobby Brown My Prerogative here)

Art is life and life is art.. I am not sure who said that, but whoever it was did not live my life that is for sure LOL. My life is not very artistic, but it has been beautiful in some parts such as having my kids, watching them growing up, growing up in Tyler, TX with my grandfather, uncle in the same house. Being surrounded by books as a child and being able to give the love of reading to my children.

I lose myself in books ~ the characters, the plot, the theme I live through them, breath as them, become them till the last word is read and I close the back cover become myself again. Books are magical and they can transform your life ways that nothing else can.
