Brain Droppings is an art

Inspiration appears in odd places....George Carlin was known for his use of words and brain dropping comedy but who knew he was also inspired by another?  Below is quote he included from page ix of his book Brain Droppings.  Enjoy..

" There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique.  And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost.  The world will not have it.  It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how valuable it is, nor how it compares with other expressions.  It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.  You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work.  You have to keep yourself open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you.  Keep the channel open..."

                   Martha Gharm to Agnes de MIlle, Martha:  The Life and Work of Martha Graham

As I have always said,  it is not what you do but how you do it.   However we express our lives, the most important aspect is to be ourselves and trust our hearts directions, that we are here for a reason.

As always, wishing you a healthy and happy home,
