If you want to dance, invite an artist.

#32 – Artists know how to dance. They dance with their paint, their clay, their words, their music.

I’ve always experienced life in full-blown living color. Even when I’m not in the studio, my Artist Mind comes with me on road trips and power walks. I use it while I’m cooking dinner or looking for an eclectic restaurant. It can find fascination with back alleys as well as mountaintop vistas.

Artists are always dancing, following where their curiosity and creativity take them, finding beauty in the moment. Art has taught me how to dance with life so that perhaps I can share that dance with others.

“The moment is everything. Don’t think about tomorrow; don’t think about yesterday: think about exactly what you’re doing right now and live it and dance it and breath it and be it.”
Wendy Whelan

“You were once wild here. Don’t let them tame you.”
Isadora Duncan

“I have no desire to prove anything by dancing…I just dance.”
Fred Astaire

“We can’t choose the music that life gives us, but we can choose how to dance to it.”

“Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance.”
Martha Graham
