What do we really want?

Not the ‘auto-pilot’ version of life,
but what are those things, people, places, doings
that make us feel vibrantly ALIVE?

    Reading on the patio, and listening to WWII music, while my MaiTai (my cat)naps under the table.ReplyCancel

    What makes me feel vibrantly alive is singing praises to our Lord in church (and at home!)

    I’ve been wanting Oprah’s new book!

    I love what you share! I’m not a painter, I work in fabric, I ‘dream’ of capturing a touch of the beauty you create in my own way! In other words, you inspire me greatly!!! Thank you!!!ReplyCancel

    Joy comes from being present..ReplyCancel

  • Sue Williams - October 28, 2017 - 7:04 am

    What brings me JOY? Always when I’m in nature, enjoying the freedom of seeing so much beauty and feeling humbled by the fact that I am a mere mortal, totally in awe of the various shapes, colours and aura of the magical scenery at that moment.
    I look forward to the day when I can join you in Europe, on a painting expedition with a group of other artists.
    Thanks for your lovely newsletters Dreama.

    I hope to be lucky in receiving Oprah’s latest book ‘The Wisdom of Sundays’, Cheers, xxReplyCancel

    Dreama, I’m learning that my inspiration comes when I’m actually DOING my art. Then I tell myself not to let household chores or other activities distract me from this wonderful opportunity.ReplyCancel

  • Faye - October 7, 2017 - 7:23 am

    Love this painting! So relaxing!ReplyCancel

The thing about immersion is it can only mean one thing.  You are actually in the present moment!  You aren’t multi-tasking, your mind isn’t racing ahead to where you need to be next and you are not handling yesterday’s conversations in your mind.

You are front and center for YOUR LIFE.
Which is where, curiously enough, all the magic happens 😉

    Today I was immersed in cooking and baking with apples from our orchard – chunky applesauce and apple pie dusted with cinnamon and sugar. I would post a picture, if I could. Still waiting for the pie to cool so we can eat it. Although I’m not able to join you in Italy at this time, I always enjoy your posts. Thank you!ReplyCancel

  • Lynda Ashley - September 30, 2017 - 9:09 am

    Hi Dreama, while I have always wanted to take one of your journeys, alas it just isn’t in the cards for me right now yet I always follow your adventures. I immerse myself in my pottery classes right here at home. Strictly a novice, I find myself transported for 3-5 hours one day a week at my classes. And every time I look at one of my pieces, I am filled with wonder that I created that as it reminds me of how tranquil I felt when making it.
    Thank you for all your posts.ReplyCancel

  • Antionette - September 30, 2017 - 8:40 am

    Hi Dreama,
    Entering this course is certainly one of the best treats I ever gave myself!
    Cooking and photography are some of the things I love doing, and spending time outdoors taking pictures of flowers is when I immerse myself, forgetting about everything…. just focusing on the beauty of creation, the purity of nature.
    Kind regards, looking forward to the rest of your talks!

  • Katherine Dozzo - September 30, 2017 - 6:15 am

    I have taken the time to paint every day while here in Frisanco, Italy. You might say I have been totally immersed in my work. I have compared previous paintings I’ve done while visiting this village to what I am accomplishing now. It is an 80% turn around!!!! Thanks to you and your wonderful teachings on just being happy with yourself and letting the real you immerse!!! Not allowing fear in your life and being confident with each stroke you produce. I never thought I would become an artist with any skill, but now I am finding each painting I do, so much fun and exciting with my own kind of flare.
    I will be enrolling in your new course from Italy. Can’t wait. Keep up the great paintings and work. You are the best ever!!!
    Love you,
    Katherine DozzoReplyCancel
