Flotsam and jetsam
Of life gathered in altars
Saying I am here.
(Mini-zombie doll by artist Linda Willis)
(Painted rocks by the Rock Fairy)
(Star by me, Scarred heart by Alisa Burke)
(Mermaid from a Playa del Carmen souvenir shop, Henrietta bobbin doll by Sam Johnson, felted Rock Being by me)
(Stitched squares by me, yoyos by my grandmother)
Yesterday, while continuing the unpacking process, I finally reached the point where my real stuff, the stuff I love, that I have chosen, that I have gathered along the way,
was emerging from the piles of paper
finding new homes in my new home.
I recognized the feeling of placing my stuff just so,
creating little altars everywhere,
of marking the spot
with my very own hand, eye, and heart.
Made me feel like I am here now.
Made me feel at home.
Interesting to acknowledge, appreciate and in fact love,
the fact that
the creation of a home that reflects bits of who I am,
where I have come from,
what I love,
from my Heart.
Happy Friday, Beautiful Ones!
