Day of Radiance

Last night there was a sky of cotton candy.I was on the Highline as I watched it fade away...between the lines and over the river.The sky was wispy and dreamy, as the sun made room for the moon.At sunset I said goodbye to 25.At sunrise I said hello to 26.Today is flowery!Today is a day of radiance!Today is my birthday!I'm thankful for all the kindness and pretty things I have that make me smile. And I'm thankful for all of my friends that came to celebrate with me!A wise person (thank you, wise person) recently introduced me to SARK, who's an incredibly brave and free spirited artist that shares her life through her work! Her work was the inspiration for another one of my favorites, Sabrina Ward Harrison. Both of them have inspired me to release my emotions through my art.At my birthday dinner, I gave everyone their birthday from this 2004 daily calendar. We also picked out different messages for each other. It was fun passing them around and seeing what words of inspiration they had for their day, and what people wanted to say to each other (keep in mind, most of you were strangers!)April 7, 2004 was a "day of radiance!"I think this still applies. :)So here's to being 26 and everything it will bring :)

  • Colorful lists!
  • An organized desk
  • Trains that come on time (and being okay with the ones that are late!)
