It came really quickly from CA, filled with beauty, kindness and love
from my friend lynne hoppe.
Every precious detail made me smile and sigh...
from the perfect white feather inside the card to the cloth wrapped treasures inside.
You see, lynne and I share a love for rocks, among many things of beauty in our world,
and she lovingly shared some of her gorgeous hand-painted creationswith me !
Also wrapped in this package was an incredibly smooth black stone...
A rare piece of obsidian,
that lynne had asked for just for me
and the Universe gifted us both with...
I looked up the properties of this special stone and found that
"Black Obsidian is protective and provides support during change. It repels negativity and
disperses unloving thoughts." It is also a stone associated with transformation
and with facing the Self full on.
So very appropriate to where I feel I am these days...
I absolutely marvel at the whole package
and the love and care that lynne put into this gift.
I have a heart connection with this incredible woman whom I have never seen in person,
yet have felt connected to in deep, soul-tingling ways.
It makes me feel truly blessed.
Big loving thanks to you, my friend lynne.
The landing from this last trip up North has been a bit bumpy.
I think I spread myself a little thin energy wise.
Today is the first day since I got home Sunday
that I feel a little more on top of things, which is good.
A day out in the sunshine with my friend Sonia (who drove all day so I didn't have to !)
helped me yesterday.
I feel the need to get things back into the flow today !
I have a package to finish filling that is heading down to Cali... ;)
I have to gather my felting and sewing stuff together for a special Art Friends Gathering weekend coming up...
The house needs a little TLC so that David is comfy while I head out again and so that my nest feels good when I return home...
And I need to get a paint brush in my hand asap to fight off the creating withdrawals !
Here's to a hump day filled with getting it done,
Big Love to you, CReative Ones !
