A couple of weeks ago, I read Trisha's interview with artist, Emily Haworth, for her Buy Handmade Series. I adore Emily's work. Her drawings look like film stills of movies I would love to see and worlds I want to jump into and explore. While reading Trisha's interview I also became enamored by Emily's outlook on life and her soft, convicted boldness of expression. When I visited Emily's website, I read a poem she's written and I wanted to share it with you:
Be happy for your battles, child; take heart in what you do.
Do not envy easy riders, child; your path has quite a view.
Discount the callous tongues, child; they do not have a clue.
You are what the world needs, child; stay uniquely you.
This poem really spoke to me when I happened upon it. It was the new moon then, so I was feeling quite introspective and more sensitive. Some recent life events have caused me to reflect in new ways on a few things about my life and unique experiences. Emily's poem was a bright little seed of wisdom for me on a dark day. And her drawings, a welcomed escape into another space and time.
*Within the Mystic,Emily Haworth*
*The Mind's Eye, Emily Haworth*
Enjoy the full moon tonight.
