Oh Captain , My Captain

Saturday, November 16, 2013

Great scene from the Dead Poets Society - Remember ? That's me ! I dare to be myself - Free and Clear to Create ! I Love it !! Working in the Glass Studio Today - I am creating 3D Harry Potter stained Glass Night Light Books made from glass for Christmas Gifts for the Grandchildren will photo and upload ( still having problems uploading/importing new photos on this systems - I have been relying on old photos and photos from friends lately , might need more space or new computer ?)
While I was in the studio today I was watching a Movie on Turner Classic Movies on Demand - One of my favorite - The Enchanted Cottage - any way there is a line in that movie that every time I hear it really motivates me-

The scene Robert Young has been deformed in the War and is trying to mend his broken Heart-
He starts to remember a gentleman Friend of his that Creates Ships in a Bottle - When asked why he created these works of art ? The gentlemen replied : We are all but Ships of different kind some schooners , some Tug Boats Others canoes all trying to Brake free from that Glass that Holds us prisoners Only Freed from ourselves and our own self conciseness and inhibitions can we Sail Free I dare to be Different it helps me Create - It keeps the Creative side of me thinking - only freed from that glass will I brake the Barriers that Hold me prisoner to Old Thought Process the Freedom to Choose to Be Different to make a Splash and go forward to enjoy what I have in my Life - Ok - Back to Studio - Have a Great weekend - Lil Racer - all photos taken by me

    Wow! I liked this. I love old movies and I must have seen this one, but I don't remember. Something for me to do today, find that movie.
We should all chose to be different, the only way to be (UNIQUE). Than there would be no more competition, we would all be free to be ourselves, What!
I just love that steamboat and you and the captain, very happy picture.
Do love your stain glass, and the gifts you are making sound great too.
Enjoy your Sunday. emoticon

    Awesome post! If there's one thing I've never been scared to be in my life, it's different, lol! Sometimes it can backfire, but most of the time it's what makes my life worth living.

Dead Poet's Society was one of my favourite movies when I was growing up. Maybe it's time to re-visit it. I'm happy you're finding time in your busy schedule to indulge your creative side. Can't wait to see pics of all the Xmas presents you're making. Love the lighthouse! :)

I have always thought we are in cages with bars made of our own fears, the door is unlocked but we still stay inside.

    I love that movie! And I love your "take" on it. I just joined Spark People and yours is the first blog I've seen, other than the one I started. What a coincidence! I did a stained glass piece in a class years ago and am taking a refresher course next week. It's nice to "meet" you. emoticon
