3,900 Pages of Paul Klee’s personal notebooks (1921-1931) are online. I love his art and thoughts on color and really enjoy his works. Klee taught at the Bauhaus in Weimar from 1921 to 1926 and in Dessau from 1926 to 1931. During his tenure, he was in close contact with other Bauhaus masters such as Kandinsky and Lyonel Feininger.
“The most beautiful thing we can
experience is the mysterious.
It is the source of all true art
and all science. He to whom
this emotion is a stranger,
who can no longer pause
to wonder and stand rapt
in awe, is as good as dead:
his eyes are closed”.
“You will have bad times,
but they will always wake you up
to the stuff you weren’t paying attention to”
Robin Williams – RIP
“Everything good proceeds from enthusiasm.”
– Brian Eno
Two Options, quite simple indeed.
Listen to the mustn’ts, child.
Listen to the don’ts.
Listen to the shouldn’ts,
the impossibles, the won’ts.
Listen to the never haves,
then listen close to me…
Anything can happen, child.
Anything can be.

And with that, I welcome a new Spring for all.
Rest is something that can be captured as form
of meditation, or a day-dream, the idea of slowing
down and taking notice of the present, re-store,
a point of re-envisioning challenges
and looking at them with intent.
Rest isn’t only a stop, it’s a place on a journey.
An “intermission of labor, mental peace.”
That quiet stance of contemplation,
being in that place, a sentinel, an observant.
To look again. To see anew.
