Three Muses Challenge...Word Salad...


I love this week's Three Muses Challenge. Here is my take on word salad. I interpreted it pretty literally:) Stepped outside my comfort zone and made a three dimentional piece. Thanks so much Ladies!! Love, Jamie

Quotes For Today:

"He who would be useful, strong, and happy must cease to be a passive receptacle for the negative, beggarly, and impure streams of thought; and as a wise householder commands his servants and invites his guests, so must he learn to command his desires and to say, with authority, what thoughts he shall admit into the mansion of his soul."
~James Allen

"The inner speech, your thoughts, can cause you to be rich or poor, loved or unloved, happy or unhappy, attractive or unattractive, powerful or weak."
~Ralph Charell

"If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It's very important to be aware of them every time they come up."
~Deepak Chopra

"The more man meditates upon good thoughts, the better will be his world and the world at large."
~Confucius

"All causes are essentially mental, and whosoever comes into daily contact with a high order of thinking must take on some of it."
~Charles Filmore

"If you hear a voice within you saying, You are not a painter, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced."
~Vincent Van Gogh

Jamie, I hope everyone takes the time to see your entry in close-up, and then reads the quotes you've shared. What a lot of wisdom, and how very eloquently your art interprets the words! Thank you so much for joining in our challenge.

Tess said...

Oh Jamie, I love this interpretation. I see a pun on "eat your words" here too. I must go now and see what the others came up with. I always have so much fun viewing the links on your posts. I love the quotes you've shared today. Thanks,
Tess

Yum ! I would swallow every bite too.
By the way, lovely Jamie, I wanted to say that the comment you left me about my obituary blew me away...It means so much to me that you have really "seen" my journey as it has been unfolding. To feel that understood and appreciated is a true gift for me, so thank you so very, very much for that.
BIG love !
Kim

Jamie this is something quite amazing and special, I have no idea how you've done it but wow I'm so pleased you went literal and then shared it with us. This one deserves some very loud applause.

Great quotes! And look at you - way to go girl, working 3d! Wish I had the courage! (and slightest idea where to start)

Seems as if you have been through the wringer lately, you poor thing. Life does just get in the way sometimes of our best intentions and ideas. I've been in a similar boat, adrift for all sorts of reasons lately. But, it's summer and many seem busy and out of sorts and routine. So, hope things are going better and my best thoughts are with you and your family!

I think you have blown everyone away with this one, Jamie. As Bev has already said, I hope everyone has taken an extra few seconds to enlarge your picture which is stunning and so original. Amazing work. And I hope that everyone reads the wonderful quotes you have included.
Standing ovation from me and, I am sure, from everyone else!

"And then she swallowed every bitter bite"...paired with the Chopra quote about not getting trapped by the ego's false assumptions; et al...... make for a most interesting and EXCEEDINGLY well-planned and well executed assemblage...If I wore a hat, it would be tipped your way!
