Bucket List

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." --
Mark Twain

When "A Gift of Love," is published; when planets Pluto, Mars, Earth and Saturn, and all the constellations are in full alignment with the dining room chandelier, I will see the following as reward for fulfilling my promise:

"Big Ben"


"All Aboard!"

"Departing Portsmouth"

"Welcome to France. Just as the Allied troops saw it."

"Abbey at Caen"

Writing Tip:

Mark your calendar for a weekly "artist date." Set a specific time, e.g. 3 p.m. - 4 p.m., to write, sketch, paint, or draw. Plan to reward yourself with something silly--a berry smoothie, gold sticker stars, or cup of Cappuccino at Starbucks.

Writing Quote:

"Wherever you go, go with all your heart."- -Confucius

Now go write something. I dare you.

See you in print,

Linda Della Donna

P.S. Thank you, JB, wherever you are.

I love the thought of setting aside your artist time..just as important to exercise our right brain as it is to exercise the body at the gym...and just think of all the beautiful places you go to to exercise the artist within...

Linda: The Mark Twain quote is one of my favorites. Really beautiful pics, too :-)
