I wish I could say I took this fabulous photo, but it was our superstar photographer Boho Denise who did the honors. Isn’t it a perfect portrait? I love the beauty, romance, sass and strength she brought out in my friend Kelly Rae. Wow, right?
Well, if you don’t already know, Kelly Rae has a few superpowers herself, namely creating gorgeous paintings and inspiring us all with her soulful writing. In her first book, Taking Flight, Kelly Rae talks about “getting our wings” as artists and our journeys in getting there. The book is doing SO well, and is #2 in the creativity and genius section on Amazon. So proud of you Kelly.
As she and I flew together to NH last week for Squam, I interrupted our conversation as the plane was just about to take off. “I love this part!” I gushed and proceeded to look out the window and ignore her, feeling the thrill of the plane pinning my head back to my little airplane pillow. Little did I know (until a few minutes later) that this was the scariest part of the flight for her! and was using me as a distraction…
Me: But we’re Taking Flight Kelly!
Kelly: I know! It’s scary!
We then mused on the metaphor of Taking Flight and how some people love the thrill of that leap into the unknown and for some it’s a white knuckle type of journey. No matter how it is for us, we can all get there just the same. If you’re thinking about taking flight into a creative life, this book is a perfect companion.
