Collection of Marketa’s Creative Mojo

19029223_1033388493464603_7085931169925909218_nOne of our Fearless Leaders, Marketa is always jotting down beautiful words and mini-expressions of art and inner musings, like a shot of expresso, but for creativity. So here is some of her magic.

  •   Life is like a series of lessons, with many roads to take. Never get mad when you take the wrong one because the cool thing is there is always a reason that you were on it.

  •  Peace is rare. When you have it cherish it.

  •   Theater is the perfect outlet to me. Gives people a chance to be, say, and do things that they never would. Be bold, make choices and be unapologetic.

  • What moves you? As humans is always in search of purpose. All souls are all connected by the need to move forward. You’re more than just flesh and bone. Stay inspired.
