“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”
― Leonardo da Vinci
Use your notebook as a canvas today. Craft a picture that is “felt rather than seen.”
What a lovely idea!

"He does not despise real woods because he has read of enchanted woods: the reading makes all real woods a little enchanted. This is a special kind of longing. The boy reading the fairy-tale desires and is happy in the very fact of desiring."
C.S. Lewis (via petrarchan)
I really love this. I think it’s true about all stories, and the empathy they can generate for people and the world we live in. Plus, of course, one has to be looking, at least a little, for the magic, or one overlooks it entirely—in woods, in books, in museums, anywhere.

I always appreciate it when my writers’ group offers up a prompt that makes you consider a new perspective. This week’s best prompt was to write from the point of view of “someone who works at an airport.”
