in a place that has brought me incredible joy over the years.

Really truly loving my art work.

Feeling like the Artist Soul in me is emerging into my pieces lately.

And finding ways to share it…

(look for some new stuff, including this card in the etsy shop soon)

I am well and truly blessed to realize that my life right now is full of sweet and quiet joy.

Everyday.

Even in the midst of this sometimes scary, sometimes painful,always speeding,

completely chaotic world

we have created.

If I put my own brakes on,

return my gaze, my focus and my heart to what is right in front of me,

the joy is there for me to revel in.

For that, my friends, I am grateful to the bottom of my Soul.

"If I put my own brakes on, return my gaze, my focus and my heart to what is right in front of me,
the joy is there for me to revel in." Oh, my dear friend, that line just broke my heart open but in the BEST way- it broke it wide open and sparkles and color came pouring out. Possibility. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
