Joy, Freely Given

Today I dedicate this blog post to a fellow artist whose generosity of spirit overwhelms me.
Amanda, persistentgreen.blogspot.com, has long been a source of inspiration to me. Her commitment to a vibrant, juicy, artistic life spurs me to aim for the same.

On Amanda's blog for today, persistentgreen.blogspot.com, she has launched her first e-book and wonder of wonders, is offering it as a gift. Wow.

My copy is already downloaded and printed out and displayed, eye level, at the nexus of my home.

I plan to change the pictures often, as the spirit moves me. In fact, as I was taking these pictures, I switched out the pages--look closely and you can tell!

Already, after only a few hours of walking past these vibrant pages, the level of joyful expectancy bubbling in me has risen markedly. I am finding joy everywhere, even on the sticky wrapper from a recently slurped down waffle cone :)
Amanda, sister artist, lovely  human being, fellow child of God--I salute you. And I thank you.

Thank YOU! I love the idea of putting this book up on your fridge and rotating out the pictures. I'm not sure that would have occurred to me, even though I specifically designed the book to be print-friendly. Thanks for helping me see a whole new use for these pages.

I'm so grateful for this opportunity to be an agent of joy. Thanks for sharing your experience with me--and your readers!
