Talking Stones creator and founder, artist: Sarah Opat
Talking Stones started off as a scribble of an idea in a leather sketch book on a double decker train in Chicago.
Sarah Opat worked in Chicago at an advertising agency on Michigan Avenue. She was sparked with fire and full of wondrous curiosity. She was constantly writing. She was writing down stories, poems, goofy life to-do lists and constant stream of consciousness in a little brown leather notebook. The building Opat worked in had a garden on the roof top. The sassy yet polite Human Resources friend often told Sarah, "Why not make a website out of all your journal entries". So Talking Stones began the day Seth told her this in the honey comb shaped desk at The San Jose Group on Michigan Avenue. A website created from the brain and finger tips of Sarah Opat powered by stream of consciousness.
Talking Stones lets you and your attention span look into the world of art and see what the world through creating, writing, publishing. "I have been interviewing artists on my radio show at Lakeshore Public Radio," said Opat, "The more I live, the more I enjoy meeting more creatives and getting jiggy with a brainstorm session. Talking Stones lets my ideas flow from the infinite universe inside my brain into your world, your phone, and your imagination," said Opat.
Talking Stones is a digital sandcastle created by Opat. Talking Stones smiles at the thought of sharing ideas that started in a brown leather notebook on the train headed to Chicago. This blog has the goal to challenge individuals to see the world around them and allow it to be there, accept the moment and appreciate the now. The goal is to immerse all senses and share stories. This blog strives to share ideas and art to spread awareness of creativity. "My published works pertaining to art and public relations and anything else that tickles my god damn fancy," said Opat.
"Talking Stones wants your ideas to slow dance like smoke with my ideas inside this email box here. Have an idea you want me to explore? I will write a response to every submission and feature it in the blog section. Talking Stones allows me to flow. I get what I had down on paper into this world of digital sand. Talking Stones is my digital world," said Opat. "I built this digital sandcastle with the sole intention of letting you inside my complex soul. Letting the reader inside my wonders, my imagination, my playground. I create everyday. I want you to create everyday. We can create everyday together. Let's collaborate and feel the power of our imagination burst with color and bold expression," said Opat.

Talking Stones is supported by the brain and heart of moi. C'est moi. Translated from French to English - "It's me". The hustle of three jobs, a volunteer radio gig and blasting out art on the walls of harmony I keep the momentum fresh and innovative. I'm an artist from the soul, a human with a gold vision. I bring to you, my art. My love. My passion.
Get inspired. Feel the wire of love volt your heart and always take a deep breath and an even longer exhale to feel the moment.
