Freedom of Speech

I've been unable to post for the past few days as for some reason Blogger was being censored here! Thrilled to find today that I could log in!

Continued work on "Solitary Vision" - nearing completion.

Also "Study of a chair" which is preparation for another piece.

"Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to
conscience, above all liberties." John Milton (1608-1674)

"Free speech is the whole thing, the whole ball game. Free speech is life itself." Salman Rushdie (1947-)

"I may disagree with what you have to say, but I shall defend, to the death, your right to say it."
Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire (1694-1778)

Solitary vision

Language... has created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word "solitude" to express the glory of being alone." Paul Tillich

“I lived in solitude in the country and noticed how the monotony of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind” Albert Einstein

Happy New Year!

I'm late with posting my resolutions - there are, as usual, many. From using handcream more often and taking my vitamins more regularly to creating a serious amount of artwork.

"May your walls know joy; May every room hold laughter and every window
open to great possibility." - Maryanne Radmacher-Hershey 1995

"We all need to have a creative outlet - a window, a space - so we don't lose
track of ourselves." - Norman Fischer
