When my brain is fuzzy from writing I take a break to look at art. Every week I check out a few oversized books from the library. I am not picky. Sometimes favorites. Sometimes artists/photographers I've never heard of. Rarely do I read the texts.
Sitting in my little chaise, headphones on, sipping tea, I allow myself the luxury of just looking.
No Art History 101 test to study for.
I have amazing libraries nearby with unending supplies of inspiration and I have time to write.
I have warmth, good food, shelter and love.
Nothing like a good art break, (and a chocolate chip cookie) to fill you up.
I am a lucky woman.
