Vincent Van Gogh and your Brightest Hour

Brightest Hour by the Submarines: a pretty lovely tune.

I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day. ~ Vincent Van Gogh

Poetry surrounds us everywhere, but putting it on paper is, alas, not so easy as looking at it. ~ Vincent Van Gogh

The thing has already taken form in my mind before I start it. The first attempts are absolutely unbearable. I say this because I want you to know that if you see something worthwhile in what I am doing, it is not by accident but because of real direction and purpose. ~Vincent Van Gogh

“…it is better to be high-spirited, even though one makes more mistakes, than to be narrow-minded and all too prudent. It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love, is well done.” ~Vincent Van Gogh

    What a great blog post. Love the beauty, inspiration, music, photography… I would love it even if you did not throw in a little Tuuli Design. Once again, very humbled to have you mention me in your, more then fab blog. Wishing you continued success. The whole world, that is people with great taste should be following your blog. Well, maybe people that do not have great taste should too, so they can see what great taste is. XOXO

    I meant to go to bed an hour ago but then I popped in to see your latest posts, and our cute kids enjoying the sunset, and then followed a few of your links, and then an hour later… I wish I was Kasey Buick and that my life was that picturesque. Once again, thanks for the inspiration.
