We are still dreaming
We are still rising
We are still trying
To live the creed
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’
— Martin Luther King, Jr., “I Have a Dream,” delivered August 28, 1963

What calls for your attention
In the dark and dreary night,
Or in morning’s light of day?
What is it that reaches forth
To capture your attention
On an ordinary day?
Grasp it, and record its birth
Within your mind, hands and heart.
Detail it in an artform
To share with all the world.
“Art is born in attention. Its midwife is detail.”
~Julia Cameron, American artist, author and teacher
I Create Daily Art Challenge Day 2:
Prompt: What does attention reveal

My Camellia is a Winter Blooming variety called “Yuletide”. Right now in the midst of Winter it is covered in red blooms.
