rainbow dreamer


Dear secret painters, hidden writers, pretend illustrators, imaginary artists everywhere!
This is your call. This is your reminder.
You love the feeling of the wood between your fingers, the colors falling onto the page.  You love the scent of the paint, smearing it onto the canvas, blending and stirring. You love the way the words ring out after you've written them, the way they send shivers up your spine.


Go out, go forth, create!
The world is filled with destruction, with hatred, with malice,
it is up to us to overcome it.
To build over it, to shut it down
by bringing the beautiful up.


Create! Today is the day.
Create something beautiful!

This is beyond wonderful. Thank you for the inspiration :)
And, you might want to know, after your post 'city by the bay' I really did dress up the way I'm usually to afraid. It felf so good and I really liked myself. So, now I did this, I'm ready to dress up in life, too.
Thank you again :)
