In Nature

When I was a little girl,
I spent hours just sitting on a bridge
over a creek.
By myself.

I don't know if anyone even knows that...

Alone time
and nature always felt more comfortable
than being with people.

I was always shy.


~hoping you see blue skies
& colorful flowers today.

You Send Me...

...what I need.

I haven't been around quite as much, I know.

September is a bit hectic in a teacher's life...

...and sometimes I get lost.

But, sometimes I just am too sensitive 

So I need time
to regroup
and pray
and talk aloud to the Universe
that we are all a part of
and trust enough

And here I am.

Peace and love to you,

A new kind of happy


So many changes.
Good ones, for the most part.
I got into the rawness of life
and made changes that were tough
but ultimately good.

I do feel a new kind of Happy.

And August Ends...

Finishing up projects started...

...and loving these moments.

Those of you with a grandchild,
you know what I mean.

Those who are wondering,
it is love beyond words.

I love this little girl
and her squeals of utter joy
and those smiles,
and oh, those pink toes...


{She is dressed up for her mama's birthday.
This is daddy!}

Journal...and Baby Andi

...a work in progress

I'm feeling under the weather today
from a mysterious food allergy...

Yesterday, I painted with gesso and acrylics...
Today, I did a little collage, using a fave photo
of my flowers from last summer.

Look out world! I can crawl!

Uncle Drew (my son) and Andi (my 7 month old granddaughter!)

Scootching around is hard work.
Have a happy day!

sometimes I forget

...and then, nature will send me sweet reminders.

 I made some
nearly impossible goals for myself this summer..
I keep reminding my own self how Human I really am.

Thank goodness for learning.
Thank goodness for sunflowers

Feeling it

...a bit of journaling.

Letting go, on pages.
Making things
in order to release the heaviness I have been
feeling in my heart.

There is so much beauty in the world,
the world news has been so terrible.


Aren't we all connected?
