What You'll Find Here

I post daily (photos of my journal pages, things that inspire me and personal bits and pieces) to inspire and encourage others. I have always believed that if I can do it, so can you.

You'll find resources (my favorite supplies, books, slideshows of my art journal pages, favorite bloggers, etc...) listed along the right hand side of my blog.

I've been teaching both in person and online workshops for more than twenty years. You can find out more about my classes by scrolling down along the right hand side of my blog. I strive to make classes accessible to everyone (both beginner to advanced).

I love teaching and truly believe that deep down inside everyone is an artist, capable of creating something. There is power and knowledge in the act of creating something with your own hands, made from your own heart and head.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

Thanks for stopping by!

Well May the World Go...

This is my tribute page to Pete Seeger. His words, his lyrics and my reaction and thoughts on his death.

Chorus (and after each verse): 
 Well may the world go,
The world go, the world go,
Well may the world go,
When I'm far away.

Well may the skiers turn,
The swimmers churn, the lovers burn
Peace, may the generals learn
When I'm far away.

Sweet may the fiddle sound
The banjo play the old hoe down
Dancers swing round and round
When I'm far away.

Fresh may the breezes blow
Clear may the streams flow
Blue above, green below
When I'm far away.

Words and Music by Pete Seeger (1973)

What a wonderful song to honor & remember Pete. Even though he's no longer among us, we'll always have his music and the memories of his life so well lived.

Very poignant

Pete Seeger has been a hero in our house for a very long time. My husband and I both play music and sing folk songs. He was a true peace maker and dedicated to the idea that one person CAN change the world. It take a lot of courage to do the things that he did in his lifetime and we thank him for that. Always an inspiration.
Aloha, Kate

I love this page you did to honor Pete Seeger. His songs have been a part of my life for so many years. My local radio station did a tribute to him and I listened the entire day.
