February 21, 2014 - Estate Whim

Doesn’t it seem like 2013 barely existed?  Where does the time go? They say that it's actually a good thing when you lose your sense of time.

If you have true passion for something, and are totally in love with what you do, you never feel like you are at a job.   This change of location for many of our visitors away from the cold, stands for generating great creativity.  If you locals are feeling less inspired, change your routine.   Unlock your brain and keep your brushes wet.
