Creative Enchantment with Peaches and Tom Robbins

Several wonderful experiences inspired me to create the empowered quote above.
(Click here to learn how to quickly and easily create empowered quotes of your own.)

Since I do my best to practice what I preach, I enjoyed using my "Create the Summer of Your Dreams" Kit myself the last few months. A few Instant Oasis Ideas I chose to enjoy were to eat more in-season fruits and veggies, take more photographs and read some fun books.

These lovely summer intentions commingled when I found myself reading Tibetan Peach Pie ~ A True Account of an Imaginative Life by Tom Robbins, enjoying the sweet taste of fresh Texas peaches and photographing them as well.

"I have an appetite for enchantment." 
~ Tom Robbins

I felt instantly simpatico with this phrase and added it to my growing list of favorite quotes right away. (Feels like time to revisit some of his books I loved back in college like Still Life with Woodpecker, Even Cowgirls Get the Blues and Jitterbug Perfume.)

While playing around in photoshop with a photo of ripe summer peaches I'd taken, I was inspired to add my own love of making creative magic to Mr. Robbins' words to create today's Mid-Week Oasis Moment. What transpired was delicious creative summer fun with this empowered quote and the visual above.

"I have an appetite for enchantment and making creative magic!" 
~ Tom Robbins & Jill Allison Bryan

If nothing else, I delighted myself. The image and the sentiment make me smile. They remind me that we can experience creative magic in all areas of our lives. A bowl of fresh peaches in the kitchen becomes a playful reminder that "I Get To" see life through the lens of creative wonder and delight whenever I like ~ which is pretty much always!

What's one small, easy way you might make a little creative magic today?

What if you give yourself five or ten minutes for some low-pressure creative play?

What might that look like? How might that feel?

If this sounds good but you don't know where to begin I'd love to help you discover what your own personal Creative Oasis could look like.

Until next time, all the best from my Creative Oasis to yours,
