    Dreama, I can never decide which is more beautiful – your paintings or your writing! It’s obvious They both come from your heart and that is what makes them so exquisitely touching. Thank you!ReplyCancel

Creative inspiration arises out those times when we take time to fill our well instead of drinking from it.

    my joy comes from many things daily. Family, friends, walks in nature, relishing reading The Word (Bible), and kindnesses given and received . . . and encouragement given and received. That includes encouragement received from your online painting class. My heart overflows with JOY.ReplyCancel

    Catching a fish! Being in the forest, hearing the water gurgling in the creek, smelling the earthy goodness of the earth and having a trout take your bait ! It is exhilarating and peaceful and I am always filled with gratitude for this harvest from the wild.ReplyCancel

    At 62 I have found complete joy and I’m constantly amazed. For over 30 years I served a church as the director of music, until one day the pastor decides I’m no longer needed…because I was a lesbian. (I had been with one person for 28 years and it fell apart.) Try and find a job, quickly, at the age of 55…ha! So after about 3 months I decided to start my own community chorus. There was a work called “Sing for the Cure” that I had wanted to do for about 10 years but never had time because of my job. (I had a very busy full time church job, directing 7 ensembles.) so I started spreading the word that I wanted between 100-200 singers to sing for breast cancer. To make this shorter…we performed with 105 singers and a volunteer 52 piece orchestra 5 months later after rehearsing all summer. My dream came to then because 80 of the 105 wanted to continue. Speed ahead 7 years and I direct a chorus of 80 voices year round called A Chorus for a Cause…where every concert we do is for a different cause. It is amazing and I love what I’m doing! As a side note, I started an auditioned handbell choir in 2011 and what a fun, hard working group it is. So out of darkness came beauty. I still make music but I feel like I’m doing more good now than I ever did in the church job and I have no doubt that God is responsible for what I’m doing today. (On a side note…I’m now married to a wonderful woman.)ReplyCancel

    Joy, for me, comes in so many places, but mostly in my quiet places; my cat’s purr, the chirp of the birds or the flight of my bees. When I learned how to sit still, I learned this new language that nature had to offer.ReplyCancel

Stop waiting for external validation.
Be the first to love what you do.

    Affirmations such as your posts which I keep handy to review and remind me of the joy all around us, if only we look up.ReplyCancel

  • Elda Loredo - December 7, 2016 - 1:34 pm

    I love: sharing stories about my children when they were kids, sharing my love of reading with the children I tutor, sharing my knowledge of grammar and writing with my students, praying, going to Mass and telling God about the good in my life.
