A subject close at heart...


"God is at home, it's we who have gone out for a walk."
 Meister Eckhart 

we always have a way back home.

Today's message...

materials used:
acrylic (craft) paints, acrylic geometric-stamp, scissors, archival ink pad, donna downey stamp, Avery tag, and a tiny stapler. 

Enjoying a little "down-time" with my art supplies. 
Honestly, who could ask for anything more... 
I am grateful for these moments and a handful of artsy goodness!   

enjoy being BOLD.

An Illusion

journal spread

Do not be misled by what you see around you, or be influenced by what you see.
You live in a world which is a playground of illusion, full of false paths, false values and false ideals. 
But you are not part of that world.
~ Sai Baba

around here 
there is no denying that life can catch us off guard.
I believe, it is the way we go about handling this, that makes all the difference! 
 end of season harvest, blackberry jam.
handmade cardboard loom. 
housing one of my collage " word & phrase " clippings.
enjoying weaving more than I possibly ever thought I would. 
remembering a moment, how blessed I am to be a grandmother. (nana) 
love our newest addition to the family, Baby Jack.
thinking about the bravery these succulents take on... 
as I shelter myself from the sunless days and long October cold.
the good things in life... 
a dirty faced, bright- eyed grandchild, happy to take on the day!
sorting through paper and collage items. 
preparing to share some BIG NEWS and changes ahead... 
I have come to the crossroads of my life... 
excited as I was to move with my Husband to enjoy retirement and live the Island lifestyle;  sometimes in life we come to terms that not everything or everyone, is meant to be at the same place at the same time.
or that what was intended, just didn't come to be...

shortly after the move, I suffered horribly with medical issues with no sign of relief!
the entire time after that I have spent ill.
the climate here is NOT for someone with my medical conditions.  
with no relief, support, or compassion from anyone near.
this only made my life more difficult. creating a world, I have NEVER experienced.
unwanted. unloved. feeling of guilt, for being sick. 
there was no room for healing- mentally, physically or spiritually.

then I realized this, I had come to the crossroads of my life... 
it needed my full attention, to take a step back and realize this was a serious. 
what took place after this, I promise you there is light at the end of the tunnel. 
there is more to share and yes... life challenges us. 
I have made some HUGE steps forward, just you wait and see...

Life is good!
