Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.
- Ralph Waldo EmersonThis past weekend, I learned quite a bit at the nursery picking out plants for the front yard. Whether or not I can keep any of them alive has yet to be seen, but we'll do what we can. Sometimes I think the greatest thing I could do to protect nature is to stop buying plants!
I've bought a new paint set and some canvases and will be painting again soon. It's only through interpreting what you see into an image of your own that you learn to see what's really there. I'm going to try my hand at Japanese brush art, too. I was never very good at watercolors, so I'm hoping I've learned more patience at this point in my life.
Right now, I'm going to go study the backs of my eyelids after a few pages of my latest read, "Lost in a Good Book." It's the second Thursday Next novel.
Old Ralph was definitely on to something. What have you learned lately?
