Rock My World - “Notice.” – December 10, 2015
Rock My World rock wisdom for these days when chaos and fear threaten our well-being :
Notice the sensation of the wind on your face.
Notice the way the sunlight enters between the slats of your bedroom blinds.
Notice the way some of your dog’s whiskers point upwards like a Salvador Dali moustache.
Notice the way your in breaths are cool on your nostrils, while your out breaths are warm.
And as you notice,
come back to this moment.
This is the one moment that we have for sure.
What peace, comfort and healing can be
And if you need some more inspiration to help you get there, read this post from the amazing Jen Loudon : The Antidote to Imposed Haste.
Big present moment love from the Rock Fairy.

Rock My World – be real – December 4, 2015
Today’s rock wisdom :
Because being anything else just doesn’t help.
Forget what people may think.
Forget the expectations that you may have or they may have.
Then, the real, true living and loving can happen.
Keeping it real, in all it’s messy, beautiful, soulful real-ness.
Big love from the Real Rock Fairy, Beautiful Ones.

Rock My World – Scatter Your Dark – December 3, 2015
The dark is so very thick sometimes.
Some days, you have to push really hard to scatter your dark.
But Love can do it.
Let's do it.
Shine your love lights, beautiful Ones.
The world needs us so very badly.
This blog post had some good dark scattering ideas that inspired me this morning:

September in the Queen of Arts Studio and a L,C&C Giveaway
I can’t believe how fast time is going ?
Don’t you feel like the days are just flying by ?
Here we are the 22nd of September already !
Only 18 days until I turn 50…
But more about that later…
September has been all about the Tracy Verdugo Paint Mojo E-Course for me.
This is a great class in creativity and in intuitive painting.
Tracy is so very generous and dedicated to giving her students a positive and rich experience. I have been totally immersed in the activities and in the creative flow that Tracy has inspired. Loving it !
One thing we are doing is gradually adding layers to a canvas,
a bit at a time, over the six week class.
My blank 24X24” canvas went from white to this with symbols and marks… to this with the addition of a bit of pastel color
to this with the washes of warm and cool colors.
In week three, we went in deeper and added more layers…
And this is where my work in progress piece is now. Loving that purple !
Three more weeks of layers to go !
Another thing I love about Tracy’s class is that she encourages you to see everything as a potential art piece.
Everything including the palettes that you use to spread your paint on.
These two pieces are from watercolor paper that was used as a palette and the shapes left behind inspired the bird and the angel to emerge.
I am excited to see what else will develop as I continue this Paint Mojo journey for the next few weeks !
I have also been continuing my 50 Days for Love, Compassion and Connection leading up to my 50th birthday.
I have to admit that my crappy accounting skills took over and I don’t have an exact count of how many acts of L,C&C I deliberately committed.
I will say though, that when you make this intention to spread the love, opportunities arise all the time and when you share what you have done, other people get inspired to join in. I really love that part of the journey!
It becomes a lovely love ripple flowing out from that centering intention.
Some of the things I’ve done include providing food and water for a homeless person I passed in my car one day,
paying the entry fee at Fort DeSoto state park for the car behind us,
sending out surprise love notes and thank you cards to some dear ones,
donating some time and some Rock My World rocks to some fund raising for causes close to my heart,
and working on looking people in the eye and making a genuine connection with a smile whenever I can.
This experience has been wonderful for me. I definitely see how life can feel much more positive when you make kindness and connection a focus in your world!
And now :
A 50 DAYS OF LOVE, COMPASSION AND KINDNESS GIVEAWAY!!!
I will giveaway 5 bags of 13 Rock My World rocks to the first 5 people who comment here.
But instead of sending the bags to the winners, I will send them out to the person of their choice with a little note of love and appreciation,
To win, leave a comment on this post with the first name of the person you would like to receive the Love Compassion and Connection rocks and what you would like the love note to say. Also include your email and I will email you to get the address of your little gift recipient.
I will be sending the rocks out by the end of this week.
Thanks for reading through this long post !
Sending big love out there to all of you !
Pass it on… ;)

Some acts of L,C&C…
Some acts of L,C&C…
As part of my 50 Acts of Love, Compassion and Connection days.
(Loved this grandfather carrying his uv umbrella and shading his granddaughter in the surf at Fort DeSoto last weekend)
Paying for the tolls for 4 cars behind us on the Sunshine Skyway Bridge on the way to the beach.
Returning the shopping cart to the rack for a busy dad trying to load up his kids into the van.
Leaving sea shells with secret messages on the shore.
Sending Rock My World rocks to friends in need.
Taking time to visit, make art with,
and get to know old friendly acquaintances
(Toni, Lyle and I reconnect at after six years or so at their new home in Winter Garden, Florida)
and make them into good art tribe friends.
And the journey continues…
Big love to you, Beautiful Ones.
