She and her red boots will be in Madison, CT on Saturday at the RJ Julia Booksellers Store at 11:00am.
Guess where I will be on Saturday at 11:00am ????
Madison is about three hours from home.
David and I are both October babies and we decided that our weekend away to celebrate our birthdays was going to be down there in Connecticut.
So along with some leaf peeping and romance in New England,
I get to see my darling Writer-Lady, Patti in person !!!!!!
Big Yay !!!!!
Have you seen her new book yet – Creative is a Verb ? Not only is it beautiful (especially the art work! ;-) ), but it is so inspiring. I am reading my way through it and finding myself nodding and pausing in thought all the time. It has addressed some of the questions I have been reading in Blogland from my friends too. You know, like why should I make art even if I won’t make a “living” at it, or why my art is going through a dry spell, or even how do I become an artist in my own eyes. What I love best about it so far is that it reminds me over and over that this life is all about being creative, and that we are here to “live our entire life as art”. “If you’re alive, you are creative. If you’re alive, you’re an artist.”
As someone who has finally embraced this about myself, reading about it in Patti’s humorous and story-telling way is a wonderful celebration of that concept ! And plus, the art work is gorgeous…;-)
So I highly recommend the book, and if Patti is headed somewhere near you on her tour, you should drop in for a visit with her. She is an awesome speaker – down to earth, inspiring, funny and heart warming. You will likely leave there feeling like you have connected to another dear heart who really “gets” things about this life.
I know that’s how I feel whenever I connect with my dear friend.
See you Saturday, Miss Patti !!!! Yay !!!
