Inspirational Words

“To all you creative spirits … In an email newsletter from the artist, Rod MacIver.  This time it was lengthy but, I loved this paragraph and thought, perhaps that it could sooth your soul and reflect back how wonderful and challanging it is to be us.  But, that we just wouldn’t/couldn’t change who we are.  Hope you enjoy “….Elaine Frenett

“I’m not sure what it was — the dunking in one of the two rivers, or maybe both — but as I paddled down that beautiful river in the rain and then the sun, I began to see in my mind’s eye a new approach to Heron Dance. What is it like to try to create a work of beauty, of love in this culture, and sometimes succeed and sometimes fail? What is it like to live life on your own terms, to live a life of passion rather than financial security? What are the ups and downs like? What is it like to move back and forth between a deeply satisfying, meaningful life and total discouragement? What is it like to be an artist and a writer and deal with indifference bordering on hostility one day and positive feedback bordering on adulation another? You need your center of balance inside yourself, for one thing. You need a deep friendship with yourself.”  – Rod MacIver  of Heron’s Dance Pause For Beauty
