I’m an artist . . . but that’s not saying much, because I believe, and it is something that I have devoted my time heavily to convey, that art expression is an inherent property of human nature. The media may vary, but not the innate disposition.

Those that know me have heard my “talent-as-myth” diatribe all too often, and if you end up tuning in to my posts, you will encounter it soon enough. It is my goal to change the notion, which a great number of people resign to, that one needs to have “talent” to pursue the art they feel or want and am doing this on a daily basis through my program in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.

With that as preface, I will probably devote a portion of my posts to inspiring artists, but I also plan to impart other conceptions that I have about life in general, with the goal of elevating, encouraging, enlivening or energizing those who read them.

Let me begin with this:

I wish for you the ability to create for yourself all that your heart desires.

Because Fridays are #Bokehlicious ... :o)) … ˚ºoOoº˚
Caught this little one while I was out in the early morning getting shots of my current houseguest → https://www.dropbox.com/s/dsxychtajygan75/_MG_0005_0916-_rgw_web.jpg?dl=0 ... who, by the way, has been gorging herself on the buffet I laid out for her (yeah, Monarch!) ... but she is a greedy houseguest as these flowers on the plant → https://www.dropbox.com/s/8xqf8drnw3flzol/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-30%20at%2010.29.21%20AM.png?dl=0 are totally GONE today! Oh well, I planted them for her anyway. It's nice to see that she appreciated my hospitality ... ;o).

With a nod and grin to those sundry #bokehlicious #bokeholics (that may rival the non-curator list of a certain non-theme! … ;o7)
