Couldn't decide ...

A night for quotes tonight - we are busy writing the final cards for work - only 300 more to go! So thought I would delve into my newly found 'The Artist's Way' and see which quotes inspired me. Now I have the problem of which to choose, so thought I would use both!

The first one is a call to action:
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined."
Henry David Thoreau

And this one just because I like it!

"The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed." C G Jung

I really enjoy Jung's work, he did a lot of work with mandalas himself.

This week I've been discovering the classics that I first read when I was about 18 or 19. The trouble is I can't decide which one to revisit first so I have a pile of books by the side of the bed. I had started reading 'Brideshead Revisited' by Evelyn Waugh, but today I picked up a copy of Graham Greene's 'The End of the Affair' from the library - it's in large print which is making reading a breeze! (I have wobbly eyes!!!) Seriously, I do need to wear glasses, but keep losing them or sitting on them much to my husband's chagrin, so it's lovely to sit down with a book and not have to bother finding my glasses! I watched this story on DVD last week and was fascinated with God's presence amongst everything, and just wanted to see how the emotion and questioning of the characters was dealt with in the book. It will be interesting to see the difference between the two media used.
