I am sitting here this week suffering from the inevitable Summer sniffles and bundled up in a blanket even though it is 33 degrees C outside. I am so annoyed that I made it through my Christmas break without getting sick like I normally do on holidays, and then the first week back at work I get sucker punched. Ugh.
Here’s some of what grabbed my attention this fortnight as I fed my creativity, perhaps some of them will inspire you too as we head into the weekend.
Art, freedom and creativity will change society faster than politics.

How beautiful are these fairy sculptures? I’d love one in my garden!
Struggling to get to sleep? Watch this for a while.
Everyone needs to hear these seven things.
Start your weekend off with a smile – I loved the field mouse!
This song relaxes me, I love listening to these guys when I paint.

“Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an an enormous reward. You will have created something.” – Kurt Vonnegut
And last but not least .. who would not want a giant purple squid to keep them inspired?
