Rediscovering Wonder

This is a must see for all of us who want to know where wonder and imagination might lead us.  This artist had the ability to trust where she was being led without any guarantees of any kind of success or outcome.  Her story and art are truly inspirational.

I think this quote I found on Chel's Common Miracles page fits in with this artiat and her work.

“Rejoicing in ordinary things is not sentimental or trite. It actually takes guts. Each time we drop our complaints and allow everyday good fortune to inspire us, we enter the warrior’s world.”
–Pema Chodron
