1 of 8: Seth Godin’s Publishing Master Class

Those of you who have been following my blog for a while are aware that I am a huge Seth Godin fan. Today on his blog he posted about a Publishing Master Class that would be taking place in his office so of course I applied! Eight people will be selected to participate but I am sure that the reach of this intensive workshop will be far wider than Seth’s office walls!

My Floral Photography has led me to my current project of the Dublin Art Collective which is about to host its first free Networking Event for Artists and Makers this Sunday, October 22.

The freedom to blog about things we care about is a remarkable opportunity and I’m interested to know from other artists and makers how blogging has influenced their creativity and the impact of being connected to other like-minded creative types. Please leave your comments below.

I will leave you with some food for thought “What’s changed is that more people than ever have a device that connects them to the town square. They have access to information, to courses, to opportunities that weren’t even imagined just twenty years ago. Twenty years! It’s an extraordinary thing to waste. And we’re mostly wasting it. Wasting it by waiting for a guarantee.” Seth Godin

What Sunflowers do…

“Keep your face to the sunshine, and you cannot see the shadow. It’s what sunflowers do.” Helen Keller

There are certain times when finding the silver lining is tough but it does the soul good to find them even on our most challenging days. Being thankful on those days and expressing gratitude to those who bring sunshine into our lives is a way to keep the shadows at bay.

These images are from my Sunflower bouquet at Thanksgiving. Wishing you well this Thanksgiving weekend!

Orange Sunflowers

I have been waiting to get my hands on a bunch of these beauties. Found some at a local supermarket yesterday. Lovely vibrant colour and they just look so different to the yellow I am accustomed too.
