During the Creative Process
A bramble of roses cascading outward,
turquoise gate ajar just enough to allow entry,
sunshine heating up slabs of stone.
A special place for you.
A respite from the day, from weariness, from sorrows.
For inside you gather yourself
And Love will light your path as surely as the sun lights the earth.
Bliss is…. Eddie hanging tight in my new studio chair, supervising the entire painting, with Pandora radio playing the “Spa” station:)
In Other News:
On occasion, I come across special things that I realize I should share with you—how else you gonna find out about ’em:)??
Sabbath Song Farm, which I have painted the skies and cats of, is one of my favorite places to go. It’s a B & B so far out in the country you think you will never arrive, but when you do make that last turn onto Toadvine Road, you can feel the dust of fast paced life start washing away and you are SO glad you made the trek:)) My friend, Carolyn Boatman, hosts women retreats, soul sojourns, pie-baking days, and for those of you who love scrap-booking, her Sabbath Song Farm is the best kept secret place to meet up with your friends for the day! Her place sits between Lexington, Ky and Cincinnati, OH near Brooksville, KY and you can check it out by clicking here.
The other gal is one of whom is a great writer and a deep thinker, friend and life coach Erika Isler. She has a program this spring that I was want to take but alas….it tripped over one of my own workshops, so I’ll have to save it for a later date:) It is on finding your authentic voice in writing (which I think applies to everything we do)….and it’s done using horses….kind of like the horse whisperer thing:)) It looks wonderful! You can check it out by clicking here.
Last but not least….my March Letter is coming this Saturday—make sure you’re subscribed…gonna have some good stuff in it for you:))!
