soulful goodness

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I like good blogs and the people that write them.  I was reminded of this fact when I posted a ♡2♡and received feedback that was not only kind, but wise and inspiring.
Your sweet comments chimed in my head as I toured the Minnesota Institute of Art today, and I came to the conclusion that my readers are just as soulful as Matisse.
Not sure you believe the compliment?  Well well well, Mr. Matisse said ”an artist should never be a prisoner of himself, of style, of reputation, of success.”  My readers offered the following thoughts on success (click photo to visit their blog):
See the connection? Heart and soul and a whole lot of goodness in all these answers.
I was and still am extremely grateful for your kindness.  Matisse (see above) would be impressed.  And speaking of kindness, check out this exhibit on compassion:
Just lovely, right? I meditated for a good 20 minutes while passerby walked around and snapped photographs and chatted with their friends.  Gotta tap into that internal source.

  1. What a wonderful post. I have been dying to get to the Seattle Art Museum, but haven’t ventured there in years! When the weather is nicer I am going to take advantage of one of their free days!

  2. With all of the wonderful and inspired kindness that filled your comment feed on that post, I am so flattered that my words made it into this blog. Thank you. 🙂

    I felt so peaceful as I looked at the pictures you took in the Minnesota Institute of Art. I can understand the desire to meditate in the presence of such beauty and talent.

  3. Aw shucks! I’m truly flattered that my words inspired you, especially because my daily visits to your blog inspire me every single day! Those art pieces above are beautiful, and I can see why you decided to visit them- they add so much soulful peace to the mind. I feel the need to head out to an art museum and do some soul stirring meditation of my own. Hope you’re having the most beautiful Thursday ever!

  4. OMG that is me! ha!

    I love the art museum it is good for the soul especially if your lucky enough to be around magical paintings. Matisse is pretty special- I think my favorite is his perceptive and how he painted out the scene.

Tell me something happy:
