Heart Connections...

So this was waiting for me when I got home on Sunday evening...

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,

creatively !

Big Love to you, CReative Ones !

Love all this rock talk as I adore them too. This summer we are heading up to the western shore of Lake Michigan, which is rock-heaven for me. My husband always laughs at how many I gather. But I can't wait!

I know what you mean about feeling out of it after a trip. I always seem to need down time between the trip and felling like I am back in my own life again.

I too want a paint brush in my hand today. Lets go crate something wonderful.

Love the rocks your friend painted.

That's the nicest "gift wrapping" I've seen in a long time. And the gifts inside are beautiful too-especially the gift of friendship you've discovered with Lynne. Hope you get a chance to pick up that brush soon-creating withdrawals are the worst!! Got to get the goodness out!

Comments working again. Beautiful gift from a beautiful artist. Lucky you, her work is so spiritual and lucky her for having a friend like you!

ah Beautiful Big Heart, what a lovely post... thank you... you know i LOVED making everything for you.

now this part is especially important... take it very easy on yourself and do not feel pressure about getting anything off to me. that is the most important thing... be gentle on yourself. this is what i keep reminding myself these days. sometimes it's not easy to practice, but i feel we really need to do this...

so much love to you, my Heart friend...

Wow kazow. What a treasure box. And to think it came from a friend you haven't met face to face.

What do you get the Rock Fairy who has everything? More rocks, of course! Beauties! I think you've been travelling to much lately, all this back and forth leaves your body not knowing whether it's coming or going. Hopefully you are in for a stretch of "you" time.

Totally cool package full of rocks! I hope you get some down-time soon.

Wonderful Package. As a fellow stone collector I really enjoyed this post. People always laugh at me at the beach as I pick up stones and they pick up shells. I often carry a stone in my pocket. I love to rub them when I am getting impatient. They tend to quiet me. I think I may have to try painting on some.
