What I’m listening to Jose Gonzales – Heartbeats, listen to it HERE

“Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about those who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would most likely be worth it.” — Paulo Coelho


Oh my what a quote, I think this will be my mantra for 2015, what a wonderful author. Full of wisdom, I hope to take these words and carry them with me.





As this year draws to a close best wishes to all my fellow creatives near and far.  I wish for all of us a year full of love and laughter.

  1. Viv, An absolutely perfect quote – and one I want to keep in mind for this year. I’ve copied it and am posting it in my studio/dining room. Lovely textured image for today – elements for the creative soul. Your new banner/website has a clean, graphic look (my favorite). I’m headed off to take a look at your other pages, too. Happy New Year!


  2. Viv, I agree with Donna about you finding an absolutely perfect and meaningful quote (maybe for so many of us). A mantra seems more appropriate than a word, for this coming year. Such a beautiful collage of pieces and color! Love your work! Wishing you a wonderful 2015.


  3. Very wise words and lovely graphics, Viv. Coelho is such a talent, and this quotation is perfect for getting things off to a good start in the new year. Wishing you a very happy and creative 2015. All the best for now, Bonny


  4. Viv, you’ve hit the jackpot with that quote. It. is. fabulous. I think I’ll add it to my quote doc, it’s so good.
    Happy New Year to you and your family. Be healthy, be wise, be strong. And laugh a lot. Oh, and take a lot of photos, too.


  5. Great quote Viv! I need something to get me going again! your images are always so inspirational. Have a happy transition into the new year


  6. I love Paulo Coelho’s words and I love your still life…a beautiful pairing. Forgive me as I have much catching up to do after the holiday season…Happy New Year to you and yours, Viv!
