...together...

seek those who lift you up
& encourage you to be
all you dream of being.

together, we can achieve
what seemed impossible
when we were dreaming alone.

...the cover...

out beyond ideas of
wrongdoing & rightdoing,
there is a field.
i will meet you there.

when the soul
lies down in that grass,
the world is too full
to talk about.

ideas, language,
even the phrase “each other”
doesn’t make any sense.
the breeze at dawn
has secrets to tell you.

don’t go back to sleep.
you must ask for
what you really want.

don’t go back to sleep.
people are going
back and forth
across the door sill
where the two worlds touch.

the door is round & open.
don’t go back to sleep.

[ the cover of my sketchbook for #thesketchbookproject ]

do you see her walking into the portal
or facing forward?

.

when i first begin painting her,
i saw her facing me.
& her hand with the blessing symbol.

then when i looked at her later,
she appeared to be walking into
this secret garden -
this round & open door.

...the sketchbook project...


last year, I ordered a sketchbook for #thesketchbookproject 
but never started it.
.
this year I ordered another one to complete during #the100dayproject 
but the shipping was delayed due to the virus.
.
so I got creative, literally. 

I took apart my sketchbook from last year 
and started painting the pages.  
knowing my book for this year would arrive eventually.
.
happy to say, all my pages for the sketchbook project are filled 
& my new sketchbook has arrived.  

still need to design the cover pages.
.
finally!  

I will have a sketchbook to send off 
something I’ve wanted to participate in for years.

...passion...

immerse yourself
in your passions
& allow them to
be your guide.
being who you are &
doing what you love
is magnetic.
it is the presence
that you need
that you desire.
there is no equivalent.


your desires are a nudge from the creative source of the universe 
(god = grand orderly design) 
that it wants to do more for you and thru you.  
it is knocking at your hearts door for your attention.
 open the door and let it in.  
& immerse yourself in what is calling for you.


What is calling YOU?

where the heart is


I have been creating & listening more than I’ve been reading lately.  
Sometimes my pages urge me to dig deeper into their meaning and this was one of them.
.
it’s message:
.
drop into your heart, my beloved.
feel the expansion that resides there.
feel your connection to all that is.
allow this secret garden to unfold
& reveal its wisdom to you.
it is the meeting place of heaven & earth.
it is the seat of your knowing.
lay down that which you have
believed yourself to be &
step into who you truly be -
an expression of the divine.
your haven awaits.
come closer.
.
so tell me, what are you creating?

interior design

she pauses
a moment
to reflect.
i am creative,
and imaginative
and passionate.
i am more
of an artist —
& that was the seed.
i create the world
to conform to me.
catering to me,
i decided to change
the design.




interior design — when you invoke the beauty inside of you 
those breathtaking views are reflected in the world around you.

creative power

there is a creative power
that resides within you,
flows thru you &
is all around you.
connect with this power.
not only for your good
but for the good of all.
