I turned 40 last week and am embracing every moment of it...this will be the year I will wrestle less with 'trust' and accept the present moment, roll with the punches, leave worry behind the closed doors behind me...my wise friend, Rhonda said once, that 'worry is negative prayer', how true this is and how this treasure of wisdom has resonated and echoed over and over again in my mind over the years. I accept that I have no control over a lot of things in life, and instead allow myself to accept the journey I am on and know that I am less than perfect, such is most of life, that in all our imperfections we are so BEAUTIFUL, natural, and connected to each other. This will be my 40's, embracing all that I am connected to, feel and share the compassion and love more, accept more, just 'be' more. This is my gift to me and in turn this is my gift to all those around me that mean so much to me. Compassion, love, acceptance.
The encaustic medium is magical, vibrant and translucent. My creative muse guides, inspires and feeds my soul through this medium, mixed media and collage. Blessing me with endless moments of creative joy and harmony...providing those ahhaa moments about life. Join me on this creative journey, spend some time reading my musings about this life, the blessed other souls that come into contact with mine, however brief or often, that can leave everlasting imprints on our journey....perhaps our lives might share some similarities, bringing us closer and more connected...and less isolated.
"I suppose there is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation, of one's self, the very meaning of one's soul." ~ Edith Wharton
Here's to finding those expansive moments.....
