We all experience bleak times where our hearts suffer from our ‘mindstuff’, our stories. Things can look lifeless and sadness can take hold. It’s good to notice it and feel it. At the same time, I remember that all things change and I will have the opportunity to rejoice again.

While I love winter, for some reason I am dreaming of kayaking in the marsh. I am hungry for the sounds of birds as they fly overhead. I want to feel the water’s current pull me along. And I want to see the sun’s reflection build a world upon the water. What bliss, what perfection, alone with my thoughts.

A Year to Clear, Minimalist, Simplfy. I am called to release what no longer serves me, and boy oh boy, am I letting go of stuff. Coffee mugs we never use, clothes I never wear, and books I don’t need to keep. And now the bookcases provide me with a creative outlet!

This. This play of light and shadow. Art and writing are my focus this week and this was my greeting when I opened the door yesterday to let the pups out. She inspires me every day of my life, and this gift was perfect.

Upon the Christmas hubbub, the first snow of the season brought calm and peace as I expected. Sitting down to read and let go of the need to accomplish, I gathered myself back to my center….to breathe. The dogs played, the cat slept, and I wrote.

When I am here I cannot resist going down to the beach early to see the dawning, to be inside it as it happens. The ocean transforms herself daily, hourly, and as the sun appears, I am transfixed by the light.

Practice makes permanent. What happiness music brings! What a glorious sense of accomplishment, and how powerful one feels when one puts effort into something challenging and beautiful.

I worked a bit in my Vision book this week
Making art and writing are my two loves at the moment
i was thinking about the holidays, and sorting out stocking gifts
And I decided for certain to create a new online course for December, and it will be free ! It’s my gift to students and friends and it will ultimately be a gift to myself. Like with the December scrapbook I wrote about last week, I look forward to enjoying the light of the season even though it’s a very busy time. Twenty four days of magic, inspiration, and connection that will increase our joy and bring a true sense of peace during the holiday season. Leave a comment if you are interested in learning more, i’m writing up the description today!
