Tell all!

This was not my best Artist's Date ever. But anytime I get to ride a galloping rabbit has to be a better than average day. The haircut, though. Lordy! And yet, if I look in the mirror, there it kind of IS!

With the arrival of today, we're now in retrospective mode. How's about reporting on your best Artist's Date. Post if you will. Email if you won't and we'll have a happy list for newbies and also a reminder to slugs like moi that there are fabulous adventures to be had out there.

I'm not much for bucket lists, but I was intrigued and entertained by those Buried Life guys on Oprah yesterday. Here's their blog:

And here's the Matthew Arnold poem that inspired them:

But often, in the world's most crowded streets,
But often, in the din of strife,
There rises an unspeakable desire
After the knowledge of our buried life;
A thirst to spend our fire and restless force
In tracking out our true, original course;
A longing to inquire
Into the mystery of this heart which beats
So wild, so deep in us--to know
Whence our lives come and where they go.

Tell us all what adventure the Artist's Way -- past and present -- has sent you on. And what dreams and buried inspirations will guide you on from here.

You go first. I need to cogitate.
