Welcome to my s~A(R)T~urday linky party – today: Listen to the art

“The whole culture is telling you to hurry, while the art tells you to take your time. Always listen to the art.”
~ Junot Diaz ~

L ast weekend we spent a few days away from home. Living by the words that I ‘preach’ (see my previous article) we took some time to ourselves at a destination spa. It was my birthday weekend and David’s gift to me (and us) was to indulge in relaxing treatments, massage, steam bath, sauna, meditation, yoga, art classes, great food and wonderful company – not necessarily in this order.

We both took Friday off work, so we could sleep in, have breakfast and then slowly drive out to the Pennsylvania Poconos. About two hours later, basically in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by nature, forest and next to a small lake we got to the Lodge At Woodloch. It wasn’t our first time at this spa. We had been here for David’s birthday last June, and we liked it so much that we returned. And may I just say – I hope it wasn’t the last visit either.

Here are some of the few photos I took. First off the summer photos and then for your direct comparison the ones I took this past weekend with ice, a little snow and hardly any green. But still very beautiful.

So, tell me – would you rather spend summer or winter at the Woodloch Lodge Spa?

I hope that over time we will be building a community dedicated to art and creating. I rather like these words said by Andy Warhol:


Don’t think about making art, just get it done.

Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. 

While they are deciding, make even more art.”
