Found this quote on a coffee mug at a friend’s office and thought it was worth repeating here …

“Remember as a child how important art was to you and how it satisfied you, and how you’ve learned over the years that it satisfies you still. What other activity — or thing — or place — can make this claim?

ART and MUSIC are the drugs of choice for millions of kids. If we expect them to ‘just say no’ to a chemical high, we must reorganize the healing alternative … their own creativity. Demand and support the real anti-drug program … arts in education.” © Fred Babb

Fred Babb is an artist of wonderfully whimsical works found in museums, galleries, art shops, on t-shirts, mugs and posters.


Here’s a very helpful article on the creative process, with 9 points to live by.

It’s written byNita Leland, a fine artist, who’s been teaching for 30 years.


You’ve heard of the magnificent dancer/choreographer, Twyla Tharp.

My good friend, Douglas Welch, recommended her book to me a few months ago, “The Creative Habit, Learn It and Use It for Life” … and another dear friend, Ruth Rivin, gave it to me this week. How fortunate!

Now reading it, I find myself making adjustments in my daily routine (not to mention my mental perspective) based on this beautifully presented and highly recommended book. It’s an inspiration.
