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.....

Harmony and Balance







Today I've been thinking a lot about "Harmony and Balance"...In particular, I find myself with this strong urge to journal about some time ago love memories and life musings.  I found myself listening to Manolo Garcia, a wonderful spanish artist....I discovered Manolo's music when Jeff and I were on our honeymoon in Spain, almost 10 years ago...June 1999.  My lovely cousin, Milu lives in Spain, and since then has had a little bambino herself, and I find listening to these songs has me craving to see her, and meet her little one and her partner, David.  Those days is Spain were full of joy, harmony and balance....in fact I remember enjoying vino tinto everyday, basking in the sun, enjoying tapas on the patio, and loving life with my honey....Seeing the beauty all around us and delighting in the new environment, like the many castles in the middle of Spain, the warm and friendly people and of course the lovely Spanish music, like Manolo Garcia's...Particularly lovely is his " Pajaros de barro"-instrumental version.  OOOHH and the smell of those lovely Spanish olive groves was so delightfully intoxicating.

I find music fills my soul and helps me feel joy and creativity...so here I am basking in Manolo Garcia's lovely music, creating visions in my head, full of colour and remembering glorious love moments with my honey....out of which came lovely little Maya.
