Story Time - The Queen Takes A Walk...

So the Queen (what is with the crow's feet in this shot ??!)

and her loyal and beautiful servant,

went out on a mild wintry day to see what they could see.

The Queen was hoping to find inspiration for her art...

and past experiences had shown her that Nature

is always quick to supply an abundance of that...

As the walk went on, the queen came up on sight that puzzled her...

Was this another person's attempt to make art ?

Upon closer inspection, it seemed that this was less about art and more about marking of territories...

but the Queen with her own artist eye, thought the sight was kind of cool anyway.

She walked on...

And then at the very end of the walk,

the Queen spotted a plaque on a bench right in front of her royal vehicle,

and there the Queen found her inspiration,

not just for her art,

but also for her Heart.

The Queen knew that her path was good...

and that she was doing the work she needed to do.

And knowing that she too, would be remembered for it when her reign was over,

was all the inspiration she needed.


The truest greatness lies in being kind, the truest wisdom in a happy mind.
- Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Happy Tuesday, Beautiful Ones.

You always manage to find something wonderful when you venture into the world at large. Kindness. It is such an easy word to remember...and something we don't always remember how easy it is to accomplish. Beautiful, beautiful reminder. I wish very much to be remembered for my kindness when I am no longer of this earthly world. ♥

Kindness above all. What an amazing tribute. We must live how we would like to be remembered.

I love the ribbons too! I think the marking person had to have a little love of art to choose those lovely colors :)

Life, love and kindness above all. Yes! I love this. I'm on a new path still creating, but blogging in a way that I hope extends kindness above all. I needed to give somehow. Your blog always gives Kim. You exude love and healing light and warmth. Happy travels my friend. I look forward to more snowy adventures with you and your faithful sidekick!
