I consider myself an Encaustic Artist

Well, this was some time back in the past that this photo was shot.

Some of the great inspirations I find in life, are words, some words really make more of a difference than others.

TIME by Sir Lawrence Olivier.
Stand before me on the sign of infinity, all you of the earth.
With the granting of the law of prevention comes the application of change.
I will give you the key, and with this knowledge please realise comes the responsibility of sharing it.
I will show you the way.
It is very simple. Throughout the universe there is order.
In the movement of the planets, in nature and in the functioning of the human mind.
A mind that is, in its natural state of order, is in harmony with the universe and such a mind is timeless.
Your life is an expression of your mind.
You are the creator of your own universe.
For as a human being you are free to will whatever state of being you desire through the use of your thoughts and words.
There is great power there.
It can be a blessing or a curse......it is entirely up to you.
For the quality of your life is brought about by the quality of you’re thinking--think about that.
Thoughts produce actions--look at what you are thinking.
See all the pettiness, the envy, the greed, the fear and all the other attitudes that cause you pain and discomfort.
Realise that the one thing you have absolute control over is your attitude.
See the effect that it has on those around you.
For each life is linked to all life and your words carry with them chain reactions, like a stone that is thrown into a pond.
If you're thinking is in order, your words will flow directly from the heart, creating ripples of love.
If you truly want to change your world, my friends, you must change you’re thinking.
Reason is your greatest tool; it creates an atmosphere of understanding which leads to caring, which is love.
Choose your words with care.
Go forth with love.

Other words in short poems have just as much inspiration.

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour

- Wm. Blake

"Nobody has the right to find life uninteresting or unrewarding who
sees within the sphere of his own activity a wrong he can help to remedy or within himself an evil he can hope to overcome."

Charles W. Elliott
