I have found what I hope to become a favorite for Saturdays. They will be called:
“Creative Awesomeness Saturdays”
This means anything goes. I find art and creativity in absolutely everything I see and everyone I come in contact with. I do not know why but I am obsessed with the artistic value of life itself.
So, today is Creative Awesomeness Saturday! This post is being written so late in the day because it holds a very special spot in my heart. I have been going through many emotions during the design of this blog post.
It is with great vulnerability, honesty, pure raw emotion, and feelings from the bottom of my soul that I write this to you. I am a little lost for words as I am trying to show you ALL of the depth of this post but without rambling on like some lunatic. If you follow my blog and like my posts, you know that most of them are published during the day. However, I did not pick “Musings of an Insomniac” for my URL for kicks and giggles. I truly am an insomniac, and most of my writings are done during that time when all of you are fast asleep and cozy in your beds. Therefore, if I published as I wrote, no one but me would ever see or read my musings which, frankly, would suck. I put a lot of hard work, decisions, thoughts, musings, questions, love, creativity, and a piece of me in each post on this blog.
ENOUGH OF THE PITY PARTY! Okay, these creative awesomeness works of art are the brain child of Daizy Designs. She does mostly face painting art for children’s events, etc. She is a talented artist with the creations she makes on children’s faces. However, on her website, the only “odd ‘woman’ out” are the gorgeous painted pregnant bellies you see in the gallery I have created. What a unique and creative way to capture a moment in a woman’s life when her body doesn’t belong to her any longer and yet, it is the most natural and loving thing that a woman goes through? We can never recapture the feelings of having our child move all around and kick us in the ribs so for Daizy Designs to offer women a “piece of her life” that she will never forget and always think so lovingly about when she looks at these pictures is very emotional and amazing to me.
George Redhawk was the “Creative Awesomeness Saturday” from last week when I discussed his disability and the way he has overcome that to become a world-renowned GIF artist that many artists wish he would find inspiration in their work to want to create his magical GIFS, myself include. My artwork is abstract, and I am not quite sure if that would perk George Redhawk’s inspiration in creating GIF’s from my artwork.
This week I want to focus on another aspect of George Redhawk excluding his disability. The focus of this piece is an interview he had with Nipmuc Connections in which he describes his journey to find out more about his Native American roots despite the protest of his family.
George Redhawk is an inspiration to me. Our lives seem almost parallel. George, years ago was working in the field of medicine. Not only did George work in the field of medicine, it was his passion. As many in the medical field, he worked in many areas. Finally, he became an instructor in the medical field. Then tragedy struck. He found out he was going blind. Even with his diagnosis, he continued his instructional work in the medical field for 4 years. George speaks of how his diagnosis ending his medical career was
“devastating financially, physically, and emotionally”
His condition is progressive meaning eventually he will go completely blind but until then somewhat like me, he found his way to the internet and the wonderful possibilities that lay online. He explored the internet to see the beautiful things on this planet while he still had some remaining sight.
I am an avid fan of Pinterest and have been a user on Pinterest since it was still in beta. I have two Pinterest accounts – one for my Internet Marketing business and one for my Decoration and Design Donation Art business. I have recently decided that it was time to review my boards and revamp ones that are not interesting to others. I have over 1.7K followers so I have done pretty well but still, there are dormant boards that need to be eliminated. As I was searching my boards and monitoring my analytics, I came across today’s
