The Heart Always Knows

“The Heart Always Knows”
12 x 12in oil on museum quality panel

Tripping lightly down the ribbon like roads of French countryside—the heart is often seized upon by such unexpected delights.

The stage has been set long ago—beginning with stone foundations placed by another generation—with each newcomer adding their own vision.  Maybe a new door, a grapevine planted, or in this case… a couple of hanging baskets.

It has taken on a life– a magic of its own, with all the pieces of a beautiful puzzle falling into place.
To the naked eye it might just seem a bit of a jumble, like it needs to be “neated up”.

 To those that see with the heart
it is exactly right!

And speaking of the heart….

The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart. 
~Carlos Santana

Your heart always knows what’s important…. though it will never shout to be heard. it will never speak above a whisper.
But if you learn how to heed it, how to hear it, you will never feel lost in the world. 

~Alyson Noel

…the heart sees what is invisible to the eye. 
~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma–which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.  Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.  And most important, have the courage to follow your heart….  
~Steve Jobs

Thinking of adding “or too old” to a sign on one of the buildings…

Adding to watercolor journal at Paradise Cove:))

(Sometimes its okay that my daughter lives so far away.

It means I must go to the beach to see her:)))))

And generally just eating, contemplating, and catching up with the wonderful people  in my life:)

    Thanks Jobi and June for the birthday wishes—it was a SWELL one :-)! I have become a bit OCD with my watercolor journal I fear…..packing it with me everywhere and inflicting it on whomever I’m with—they must wait while I w/c and make some notes;)) If you notice the two names on the bottom of the right page, those were some new friends I made while on the beach at Paradise Cove so after a enjoyable chat, I had them sign their names so I could have the memory in years to come.ReplyCancel

    Wishing you a very happy, very joy-filled, very beauty-filled, very love-filled, very fun-filled and very food-filled (this includes many chocolates and much wine and much cake!) birthday, Dreama. This year and all the years to follow.

    California is one of those ‘perfect places’ to travel to – especially anywhere near any beach – to celebrate your birthday. Perfect that your daughter lives there.

    Yes…you’re right. Our hearts always know…always. All we need to do is listen. Truly listen.

    Enjoy this moment, Dreama. And all the moments in this wonderfully happy day. And this year.

    With much love to you…JuneReplyCancel
