Spread #142 – Move August 18, 2011

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

I see my 13 year old daughter drawing people on loose papers, many people, all kinds of people, every single day. I ask her, “what propels you to do that every day?” and she says, “wanting to be better.” “…And when you are done how do you feel?” She says, “accomplished…I guess.” I feel inspired by her to create every day. When I do, I too, feel that I am better, that I am changed. People! Create in the presence of others! When you do you’ll soon see them creating in the presence of others, creating in the presence of others, creating in the presence of others…affecting change softly yet steadily. I am sharing with you this video that moves me, that supports my art-making, my sentiments today about the bond between me and my daughter, me and you.

What a wonderful spread, sentiment of creation, and song of colaboration of creation!

If we all create every day what a wonderful world it will be!

Wow, as an artist I always, well almost always, work in solitude. Thank you for sharing this. I will re-evaluate. Watched the video this morning and my day started out with a song in my heart and a smile on my face.

Dearest Orly, I turned in the very last file for the book on my daughter’s 13th birthday. A milestone for both of us. I hope that one day, you and I, and our daughters can share a space. I think of you with warmth and appreciation.

Beautiful spread of your lovely daughter – it shows her quiet determination to create everyday to “get better”. Love the video too – a great reminder that we are more connected than we may think =-)

Smiles to you and your beautiful daughter!

Thanks for the video… I always create best in solitude but the video gives me the ‘boost’ to try otherwise… see what comes from that! Your daughter is a huge inspiration! Give her my greetings (‘groetjes’) from Holland!
