I think it is enough,
at times,
to go without knowing
where the end is,
what the beginning–
so long ago.
Perhaps you have friends
who can whisper
such things
in your ear,
hear little bits of
in the laughter of children.
But mostly we just proceed ahead,
not remembering
how it all started,
where it is leading,
not sure
if we are the waiting animal
or the animal’s passing
in the grass.

i've been drawing and coloring mandalas.
there's something very relaxing about the process and i love the outcomes.
i just got a new set of prismacolor colored pencils.  so worth the extra $$$.

misty's class has come to an end.  i've been really busy and distracted by other
things, but have loved having her class to go to...this is an oil painting with some gouache added.

i will continue to go to her class site and finish assignments....and will post along the way :)
i highly recommend taking a class with misty if you can.  she's an extraordinary teacher

sunday morning . 

this came to me this morning.
sometimes i wake up with something in my mind and
have to paint it (write it out).
we are all going through something....sometime....
not matter what,
it will be okay~

"the earth listens.
silent, quiet, still.
lessons are taught.
hold on tight.
but let go.
try to understand.
everything is okay."

be love

"embrace, understand...or try.
i know you.
we are different.
you are love.
i am love.
i love you unconditionally.
no matter what.
you are mine.
you are your own.
we will fly."

 i am feeling a shift.  a pull.
not really knowing what it all means , but that something
big is happening.  i have a sense of calm, but also an energy that 
is new and different from my usual.   
my routine is simple.  i am in hibernation.  not feeling the need to 
be all over the place and doing what everyone else is doing.  we are 
all kind of hunkered down here .  
inner peace is abundant (at the moment) ..... i'm feeling strong and, art, family.  (not in that order)...
i feel challenges too.  the unbelievable, powerful connection between 
mother and daughter.  intuition and knowing.  unconditional love that is 
innate and stronger than the pull of the moon.  i am so thankful to be 
fully present for them and with them. the lessons, the experiences....all 
of value.  

i really like this:

Cleansing Prayer:
I cleanse myself of all selfishness, resentment,
critical feelings for my fellow beings, self-condemnation, and 
misinterpretation of my life experiences.

I bathe myself in generosity, appreciation, praise and gratitude
for my fellow beings, self-acceptance, and enlightened
understanding of my life experiences.

 in my journal.......

 (assignment from misty's class...."who are you")

where do souls go?

( assignment from misty's class....100 things to be happy about)

(assignment from misty's class....charcoal....not my thing, but i'm still doing it!)

(assignment from misty's class ...icon collage)....
misty's are so beautiful.  her icons are hauntingly beautiful.

listening to this.
reading this.
wishing you all a love filled month....blessings...peace~
