"Being an artist means, not reckoning and counting, but ripening like the tree which does not force its sap and stands confident in the storms of spring without the fear that after them may come no summer."
Rainer Maria Rilke
I have not been on this site for eons. I decided to go back and look at the date that I created my page and it was June 4, 2008!!! I can not believe it has been that long!!
My life has taken so many twists and turns since then its mind boggling. I'm pretty sure the last thing I posted here was in 2012 or so. For those of you who are into astrology it seemed that from 2012 to 2016 it was an intense time of growth. I had so many people in my life die. Talk about the journey of the…Continue
As the clear winter water
Nourishes the seed within the earth,
I am nourished by new-found awareness
Of who I truly am.
This awareness has not yet fully matured,
And I rest content
In the arms of the unfolding universe,
Which will reveal all wisdom
In its time.…
I've decided today is going to be a tolerations list day and a "streamline" day. I'm going to take whats on my tolerations list after I've completed it and write a streamline list for how I can move the tolerations off the list and create a solution and streamline my life.
This being the Christmas season is not helping on my busy-ness scale. I didn't realize that I neglected so many things these past few weeks. Although to give myself a break while I was neglecting some…Continue
I wrote out my vision as I could see it March 10, 2013 and as I have noticed a lot lately it is manifesting at warp speed. It was not an unreasonable list by any stretch but its only been two days since I wrote it and poof..its all coming at me. Now I should put in the request: A little slower please! lol
One thing I wrote out was "My house runs smoothly. It is well organized and clean. The baby is in daycare 2 days a week" etc...
Well the department of human services…Continue
I actually don't remember how many seasons I've done. No matter..this is day two of a new season.
My intention is to get clearer on my intentions! haha..
We have taken custody of my 3 year old grandson so we are in a learning curve for sure. Its been a while since I've done car seats and pull ups and slimy snails and puppy dog tails. I'm learning again though. Thank GOD I'm young enough to handle this. Otherwise I think this would be one very exhausting endeavor. Its tiring…Continue
I have decided to start a new challenge on Dec. 1st. It just seems like a good day to start everything this year haha. My life has become VERY challenged over the course of 2012 and I feel as though, although I can't change the events that have happened, I know that I have the power over how to view them. I'm not in a negative spin but I recognize that I am not in a positive one either. I'm just kind standing here, dropped jaw, scratching my head saying "what the hell just happened?". I've…Continue
Fly away, little wing
I saw my mom on July 22nd
I wrote the following through sobs and tears on July 23rd.
My mom flew away on July 27th
Amy, my daughter dreamed of a teeny tiny bird in her hands on July 31st, the day of her funeral. The teeny bird flew all around us as we sat in a circle. Then it landed in her hands. She tried to hold onto it. It flapped its tiny wings and flew away. It was free, clearly saying "Don't hold on to me"
Amy had NO idea…Continue
Interesting that those butterflies are tatooed on my back, well, one of them anyway!
from my friend David~ he shared this quote:
"When the artist is alive in any person, whatever their kind of work may be, they become an inventive, searching, daring, self-expressing creature.…
