I always try and set a creative project for the weekend.
This weekend I painted a doorhandle hanging for a gorgeous friend in Sydney.

“Goddess lives within” indeedy.

Creative projects don’t have to be much.
They can be very very small.
Just to get the juices flowing is wonderful!

Yesterday’s creative project was eating a mangosteen.
I ate boxes of these in Malaysia, so it was a delight to find them in the supermarket.
I love the vivacious red purple when you crack the mangosteen open.
The segments which taste of mango and apple and banana and lychee all at once.

I unpeeled it slowly in the sun,
ate it bit by bit,
with dog at my feet,
and lover pandering around, photographing.

The most creative thing one can do
is create a life well loved.

“you are an artist…
the beautiful, authentic life you are creating for yourself
and those you love is your art.
it’s the highest art.”
