Technically, that is Friday Sky but let's pretend, okay? Today's gray sky is not that pretty, not bad, but not that interesting for blogging about. The florentine irises are all in bloom and just gorgeous. This is the time of year when I'm glad they are so prolific. Later in August.....not so glad. :D However, it does let me share the lovelies so let me know in the comments if you would like some of these irises later this summer. Don't worry, it takes several years for them to get to the dividing stage. Nora, if you still want some, I'll mail them this year, rather than trying to deliver. :D I know Stacey is on the list for this year, now that she is settling in on her lovely lake.
Peg in South Carolina posted about creativity this week and linked to an article by Elizabeth Gilbert. There was also a link in Peg's comments to this YouTube video of Elizabeth Gilbert talking about a new way to think about creativity. (The video is long but worth it.) I think I'll come back to read and view each of them again as there is a lot of "stuff" there to think about. I think she's found a way to maintain "mojo" more consistently and to avoid our inner critic limiting or killing our ideas and output. Ms. Gilbert's topic focuses on writing since that is her profession but the concepts, I think, can apply to any creative endeavor including knitting, painting, crocheting, or weaving, which is Peg's choice. I didn't want to forget about these links, so I'm sharing them. What do you think about Elizabeth Gilbert's article and presentation?
