Halloween Feature: Ghosts

So the truth is I have a lot of ghosts in my life. Not literal ghosts but people, folks who aren't beside me because they are either dead or far away, who inspire me to create.

These are my muses.
They propel me to keep on keeping on... to celebrate the joy of living.

I still feel the love of these dead artists....
Isadora Duncan
"You were wild once, don't let them tame you."
"Our doubts are our traitors and make us loose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt."
Zelda Fitzgerald
"She was conscious that the things she did were the things she always wanted to do."
Oscar Wilde
"Life is too important to be taken seriously."

The love of these people is like a beacon to me.  I attempt to reflect it back.  In this way the ghosts of people haunt us, pushing us to not waste one minute of our lives.

Happy Halloween!
