Spending the Energy

“Life begets life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.”
– Sarah Bernhardt

Spending the Energy – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor

Doesn’t this lady look like she is having fun?  I am not much of a dancer, but it’s fun to watch people who truly have a ball while dancing.  My husband is one of those people.  He is just so much fun.    I used to work with a girl named Darla, who was the same way.  Every bit of energy they could muster up was spent in pure joy.

Have a terrific weekend!

About Sarah Bernhardt

Sarah Bernhardt, the French stage and silent film actress known as the Divine Sarah, was born in Paris in 1844 as Rosine Bernard, the illegitimate daughter of a Jewish courtesan. She began her acting career at age 13 and quickly rose to international stardom. Oscar Wilde wrote the play Salome for her. After her right leg was amputated in 1915, she continued to perform onstage with a prosthetic limb. She was very close to her only child, her son Maurice. She died in 1923.
