Come on in... relax, kick off your shoes, and get cozy for a few minutes. I intend this space to be a happy and encouraging spot in your day where perhaps you'll sign off feeling better than you did when you signed on.

I have so much in life that I want to create, experience, and wrap my head around, and I bet you do too. I dedicate this space as a safe place to "grow" our seeds... Seeds of movement to increase our joy, inspiration, and insight - Seeds of change and evolution of our souls - Seeds of of celebration and creativity - a place where we thrive to live lives we're proud of.

How cool is it that we are given the opportunity to create a future that doesn't exist yet. That we have the choice in creating our lives and planting seeds that will grow into our dreams. I want to learn more everyday about how to do this in my life, and I would love for you to join me.

Marriage and the Choices we Make

You were born together,
and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when the white wings of death
scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together
even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens
dance between you.

Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea
between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup, but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread,
But eat not from the same loaf.

Sing and dance together and be joyous,
but let each one of you be alone.
Even as the strings of a lute are alone
though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the land of life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress
grow not in each other's shadow.

This poem, by Kahlil Gibran, melts my heart every time I read it.

My History with Paper - From Chaos to Form

I consider myself a newly proclaimed creator.  I’ve had it in me all along, as we all do, but I never took the time to explore it or carve out the space in my life to let it flow.

In the past few years, though, as bits of time started opening up for me, and as I began to open spiritually, I started playing with paper.

Creating Space - Part III - Mental Housekeeping II

Magnolia Plantation
I am happy to have you here today!  I appreciate you taking time out of your valuable day to ponder thoughts with me.  I may not know you personally, but I'm feeling a great energy growing around this space, and I thank you for being a part of it.  I sure would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section. I so enjoy reading what you have to say, as I'm sure others do as well. 

Last week, I expressed the importance of creating space in our minds to benefit awareness of our thoughts.  Sometimes it seems that our thoughts choose us, but this just isn't so.  Every moment of our lives we are choosing our thoughts whether we know it or not, and our thoughts always have an effect whether we know it or not.
