Silly me!

 It seems I am so slow  to learn! It is utterly silly
that it has taken me so many years 
to learn life's most basic lessons.
But I have learned a few... like the value of listening,
and letting go, the incredible truths one can hear in silence.
I have come to appreciate the powerful gift of understanding
and the peace that come from kindness.

And amazingly,I feel no obligation to explain myself. 
I know who I am.
I think this is called 
"being comfortable in your own skin."
What a glorious realization!!
It makes life sweeter and I greet each day
with an open heart. I still have much to learn.
Silly me! I'll never be "done."

 I intend to relish this beautiful journey,
to continue to listen to the universe,
to appreciate its amazing benevolence .

Sometimes I wonder how it would be to travel back in time,
not just to another place and era, but to a feeling.
Imagine a snowy afternoon, near twilight, the sun 
smoldering at the very edge of the day.
Imagine a breathless feeling, a knowing
that life is such a golden gift,
a treasure so dear the knowledge
of it nearly ignites in your chest.
Imagine the beautiful weight
of possibility, the sound 
of silvery runners over the snow.
Winter days are for dreams,
for small excursions of the mind
when the world is cold and quiet.

a winter day...

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
Ecclesiastes 3:1
What a lovely day... church, lunch with friends and a beautiful snowfall.
I am a summer gal, but even I can appreciate a day like this.
My daughter and I went to an abandoned barn and took lots of photos.
It was so magical.
There are blessing everywhere...
even in the snow.
~Stay warm~

Everyone knows that things look altered when viewed from different perspectives.
Even a thing you have seen countless times can appear utterly different
when you approach it from a changed direction. 
Sometimes the shift can be internal, a quietening of the inner voice
that allows the universe to whisper in your ear.
Today I was blessed with such an experience.
I heard such a whispering, a gentle, but insistent urging.
What a gift, this new and clear perspective.
I am grateful that life never fails to teach me new things,
 thankful for the blessing of a listening heart.

just do it!

happy, originally uploaded by Sea Dream Studio.
I AM a happy person. I am so grateful
for my life. I have a wonderful family, dear friends
and the gift of time to pursue creative projects
in my sweet studio.
But, sometimes I find myself wishing too much.
There are aspects of my life that could be better,
things that are within my grasp. I commit myself
to less wishing and more doing in 2011 and beyond.
I will never give up dreaming, but I want to give my dreams
wings and a voice.
I vow to dream with purpose
and use my dreams as inspiration for every day life. 
I will dream with faith, trust and eyes wide open
that I might see the path before me. I love this journey, 
even when it takes me far from where I planned to go. 
I wish you a joyful journey this year!
