WHAT IS MY SHOUT OUT FOR WORTHINESS? I make time to draw every day, no matter what! Drawing daily is part of my holding myself WORTHY! I am an artist, and part of my BEING an ARTIST is DOING the WORK. There are people out there who will tell you that ART is frivolous. Many will refer to ART as a hobby. Some even say that making ART is something that must wait to be done upon retirement. Ho Ho Ha Ha Ha!
For me, MAKING ART is a way BEING PRESENT in this LIFE and HONORING my WORTHINESS! I have sprouted deep roots (routes) in my practice of drawing for 15 minutes every day! In fact, a dear friend of mine, Edna Shipp, sprouted a Facebook page "Drawing 15 Minutes a Day" from her close association with me (yet one of the many roots/routes of my daily practice of drawing every day! Thank you Edna (see her blog)!
For my first WORTHINESS WEDNESDAY blog post, I am posting this Hallelujah Truth Image of mine.
CANNOT BUY MY SOUL. This image was inspired by the decorative art of Leon Bakst. The words for this drawing comes from the album title of an Australian artist, Kev Carmody. As an indigenous Australian (Aboriginal), he is an activist, and the words of the song begin like this:
For 200 years we've been beaten down
Too long on the dole
My dignity I'm losing here and mentally I'm old
There's a system here that nails us ain't we left out in the cold
They took our life and liberty friend but
they couldn't buy our soul...
So my WORTHINESS WEDNESDAY, I am proclaiming an ongoing celebration for the LIFE OF THE SPIRIT. I ask for all of us to cast in and share what we bring to the WORLD in the way of BEING.
SOUL BLOG with me Hallelujah Truth at Coffee With Hallelujah!
Treat yourself and listen to Kev Carmody sing, "Cannot Buy My Soul."
