Welcome friends to the launch of Adriana Spills the Ink!
I am thrilled you joined this page to connect with bold ideas, creativity and change! We’re going to cover all aspects of living with ideas gleaned from the world’s best authors and their books. The current culture will come alive as we forage the world for inspiration for you. This newsletter is your ticket to the theater, film, television and the performing arts. It’s your ticket to culinary creativity- we’re going to introduce you to chefs and recipes- including those from my own family canon. Join us as we go around the world on virtual tours, to places we’ve been and want to share at home and abroad.
Grab a notebook, on the cover write: IDEAS. Begin this process with me- and over the course of the months ahead- that notebook will be full of your ideas. We hope to give you lots of information and inspire you to live as the artist you are- maybe you write, paint, cook, travel, are ready to throw a party or maybe you’re a collector- or want to be- whatever aspect of creative living you embrace- or hope to- we are here to provide a swath of ideas and insights that will make your life better, richer, and fuller as you use your imagination and the tools we provide to make your world dazzle.
This is a glorious opportunity to bring the wide world to you, so that you might, in turn, make a plan to reinvigorate the way you move through the world and take in all it has to offer. Whether you’re a young mother with children, a couple who wants to make a life plan about where to go and what to do, or a widow or widower who wants to grow and change in the shadow of loss- this is your bulletin!
You will find inspiration in the places we take you in the coming months- virtual tours of Italy, Scotland and more- and here at home, some of our favorite places. New York City’s Greenwich Village will come alive for you, as will cities and small towns across the country. We hope to inspire you from where you live to consider all the ways your life can be enriched by creativity, bold ideas and change.
I believe the creative life is a better life. You are probably not aware of how creative you actually are in the course of a day. As parents, we encourage imagination and creative exploration in our children, but it’s often the first thing to go when we’re adults. We need to feed our imaginations as much as children- in fact, more so, because we are free to set the template of our inspiration, which changes our attitude, environment and adds breadth and knowledge to our points of view.
I can’t wait to bring you the world’s best interior designers and their tricks to make your home your castle, or your lair. You’ll learn how color is key to your happiness- and why you cover a chair in gray instead of your favorite color teal- when you should go for the teal- we hope you will develop a confidence about what you like- and make it part of your everyday living.
The world is moving so fast. We work hard and try to play hard, and often, we are stuck in ruts. We eat the same sandwich at lunch every day or we return, year after year to the same beach, or we open our closet doors and wear the same pants and jacket. This newsletter is about having you choose everything with new eyes. This is about discovery- and you’re the explorer. Welcome.
Time to color your world!
