The Wise Woman

… you know her…The Wise WomanDivinity and Creativity, embracing our essence …

In her concluding words of Big Magic, author Elizabeth Gilbert leaves us with thoughtful words about this work we do:

Creativity is sacred, and it is not sacred.

What we make matters enormously, and it doesn’t matter at all.

We toil alone, and we are accompanied by spirits.

We are terrified, and we are brave.  Art is a crushing chore and a wonderful privilege.

Only when we are at our most playful can divinity finally get serious with us.

Make space for all these paradoxes to be equally true inside your soul, and I promise–you can make anything.

So please calm down now and get back to work, okay?

The treasures that are hidden inside you are hoping you will say yes.

(Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic)

Our lives are sacred work… and all those paradoxes that go with it… We are blessed and blessing, human and divine, art and soul…wise women.  Look in a mirror, deep in those eyes…and smile.  – Anne
