have you ever been around a man or a woman
who knows who they are?
they exude beauty…
because they are in love with life
and are in life loved.
It’s so much more fun to actually do things rather than just be an observer in life
getting your hands dirty
only to find that you love the smell and the feel of the dirt under your fingernails

Since I just published a book on the attributes and potentialities of the human spirit, then I should know what ability means or what it means to be able. Right?
The ability or inability to do something lies in, perhaps, the very way we go about doing something. If, for example, I want to paint a picture and do not know what a color, hue or a canvas means or what it means to use shading, or other such art terms, then my painting will reflect it to that degree. The doingness is dependent upon the understanding of art terms. The more I know about a subject, its terms and definitions, etc, then the more able I am. There is an understanding, that with practice and skill, I am able to paint a picture or a better picture. Maybe one that draws the attention of others. My art then would communicate something to the audience, like you.
That goes with the marketing of books, too. If I don’t have a clue to what goes into the marketing of my book, then that makes me less able. It is a learning process, no doubt.
I have some more homework then, don’t I? How to do more promotion and on my list of to-dos. Some expert help has been solicited. Thanks Rick Lite!
In the meantime, won’t you check out the newest arrival of I AM SPIRIT?
Hope to hear your thoughts, comments or questions.
I AM Spirit is a 64 page book of fine art paintings and inspirational words regarding the abilities and skills of who we really are as humans; a spirit living in a physical body. The colorful paintings by Junai Meijer are captivating and infused with the richness of life. Mary Rensberry’s uplifting words encourage higher values and virtues. Each letter of the alphabet is represented by words that portray man’s inherant nature. This is a very aesthetic and inspirational work done in collaboration between author Mary Rensberry of the United States and fine artist Junai Meijer of Amsterdam, Netherlands.
