Peaceful (and Flower-A-Day Update)

Yesterday I finished my flower-a-day for a year “challenge”*! Even though they only took about 10 or 15 minutes each, it feels like a lot of daily creative energy has been freed up for other things. Am considering making an art print or poster as a celebration/memento. Didn’t keep up with the posts about it,Continue reading “Peaceful (and Flower-A-Day Update)”

Waking Up and then Waking Up Some More

I’m back to my Creativity Journey after a couple days off due to digestive issues and a general feeling of unwell. It’s been a wake up call – to be more discerning about the food I eat, certainly. And after the first couple of days, it’s been feeling like a transitional state, too. A “caterpillarContinue reading “Waking Up and then Waking Up Some More”

The little islands in the lake reminded me of something similar I saw while on vacation in Duparquet, Quebec, CA as a kid. That time, the island was enveloped in fog and somethingContinue reading “The World is a Magical Place”

Is it OK to Be More Positive? (aka, Can I Really Trust in the Universe?)

I sometimes listen to Abraham-Hicks. There, I’ve gone and said it. For those of you who don’t already know, Abraham is considered to be a group of spiritual beings as channeled through Esther Hicks. And yeah, that’s pretty far into the “woowoo.” One of the main themes in their teachings is the importance of learningContinue reading “Is it OK to Be More Positive?
