Sometimes it may feel like the world is keeping you smaller than you are or that you may not have been growing very much at all.
“What we see depends mainly on what we look for.” ― John Lubbock
Sometimes all we need is to change the angle.

“Inspect what you inspect.” Someone once asked Georgia O’Keefe why she painted her flowers so large. “To force people to SEE.” she replied.
I context, I believe the full response stemmed more from an interview:
“A flower is relatively small. Everyone has many associations with a flower – the idea of flowers. You put out your hand to touch the flower — lean forward to smell it — maybe touch it with your lips almost without thinking — or give it to someone to please them. Still — in a way — nobody sees a flower — really — it is so small — we haven’t time — and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time… So I said to myself — I’ll paint what I see — what the flower is to me but I’ll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it — I will make even busy New-Yorkers take time to see what I see of flowers… Well — I made you take time to look at what I saw and when you took time to really notice my flower, you hung all your own associations with flowers on my flower and you write about my flower as if I think and see what you think and see of the flower — and I don’t.” ~ Georgia O’Keefe
Super cool piece and a fantastic message 🙂
Good thoughts. Putting your nose to the grindstone gets you a long way. Or the potter’s wheel, in this case…
Thank you for this. I really needed to read this today. Been feeling a bit off because I feel like there is no growth but I wasn’t look at it correctly. Much love ❤️
This is beautiful!
“Change the angle” -always a great move! Thanks for posting this.
Love the Hafiz quote – thank you for the reminder that the light is within.
Such great pottery tips.
Paying attention makes all the difference, that’s for sure. 👁👁🍃
This is how I feel right about my blog right now. Like I don’t know how to grow/be seen 🤷🏼♀️ any advice is much appreciated. Thank you
I love that metaphor of the seed growing! 🌱
