Time flies when you’re having a good time.
Two months ago I passed an empty space and briefly thought it would make a good gallery. The First Friday in July, my gallery, In Bocca al Lupo opens. A quote attributed to Goethe, some say William H. Murray has influenced my intentions for several decades now:
“…the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would otherwise never have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man would have believed would have come his way. (I’ll refrain from comment on the gender typing.)
Whatever you think you can do or belive you can do, begin it. Action has magic, grace and power in it.”
An idea has almost effortlessly materialized into reality. And help has been there. I’m touched by the support and encouragment of the business community, neighbors of the gallery and the artists who participate. Friends are cheering us on. Magic indeed!
Literally everyone I’ve spoken to or interacted with has been positive ~ grace personified. There are times when consternation blooms if I allow myself to consider what I’m doing. At those moments, I take a deep breath and consciously relax into the stream of life and creation knowing the Universe is moving in my behalf and thus the behalf of others. Flow. I feel awe and wonder at how well things work if we get out of our own way and trust a bigger picrture.
Hope you will come celebrate with us!
