When Plans Fall Apart

I have a little confession.  I am not really big on planning things. Well, I do plan to some degree, but very loosely.  I also use a planner, and it is very helpful to me, but I will explain how I use it in another post later this week.  Today I want to talk about […]

Awaken to Joy

It has been a difficult week for me.  I’ve noticed the blues starting to creep in on me and one of my kids is going through a really upsetting time as well.  I’m doing my best not to let depression overcome me, in the way it often does at this time of the year.  I […]

Art is Meditation

Meditation is the act of quieting the mind or in the words of Deepak Chopra, “Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet.  It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there – buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.” The process of making art […]

Gone Within

It is inevitable.  No matter how hard I try to be consistent with my outward expression there always comes a time for me where I find myself turning inward.  I am aware of the world around me and if engaged I will respond but for the most part I am quiet and withdrawn.  I am […]

Many Thanks – Spirits Up

I’ve contacted and thanked every contributor privately, but I  just wanted to publicly express my appreciation for the wonderful support we received for our Spirits Up project.   I have had the good fortune of meeting some decent, beautiful, kind people through this experience, which has actually been uplifting for me as well.   I […]

Cheer Up!

I have been in a slump the last couple of weeks which is why I have not posted much.  I’m not sad or  depressed but I am feeling lethargic and …well…blah. I think it is probably related to the long, drawn out winter we are  having this year.  I am for certain a person who […]

Sparks

When I first managed to get myself on the internet, back in ’95-’96, the first thing I did was to search for like minded people.  I had interests in spirituality and what was referred to as “new age” philosophies at that time.   I had read so many books and yet found myself without people to […]

Altered Book – Friendship

I created my first ever altered book a couple of weeks ago.   It was a surprise gift for my friend Lor which she received yesterday so I can upload the video now of a flip through of the book.    I used a blank board book for this project but I think this would be much […]

Music and me

First recording.  Very rusty.  Long way to go but it is a start!  Youtube videos are beyond me at this point, but maybe later.

One Day at a Time

I am kind of foggy headed and bogged down the past few days. Feeling a definitely shift of mood. Last week I was obsessively working on a paper and paint creative project and at for most of my waking hours for days. I have not felt like doing another piece since then, probably because I […]
