April Love Letters

    Dear Home,

    Dear Morning,
    You have always been my favorite.

    Dear Intuition,

     Dear Books,
         I am enamored with you.  No matter where I am,
     I can go anywhere and learn anything...with you.
     You have changed me.
     You have even saved me.

    Dear Rest,

    Peaceful April wishes to you,

Memories and Cracks in the Pavement

    Old memories that were locked in a drawer, slip out
    occasionally, surprising me.

    I don't think I would change all led me
    Here...but then again... Scary memories would
    be a relief to have never happened.

    It's important to live in the present. Now.
                   Love, k

...all I want is for calm.

Writing and releasing...

Sunday, February 28, 2016


    While the rest of my family members were out and about,
    traveling here and there around this world,
    I suppose I did what an introvert would naturally do.
    I traveled inward.  I read. I thought. 
    I listened. I wrote.

    I've enjoyed my quiet time
    And have learned a lot. I love to learn.

    Peaceful Sunday to you,

Relax Mode

   Aaah. I survived An Extreme Rush and am breathing myself
                 into Relaxation Mode.
   Yes, Groundhog Day, 100th Day of School, Valentine's Day,
   Presidents' Day, my annual teacher evaluation/observation,
   and Parent Teacher Conferences...all in two weeks.
   And now, a week's vacation.  Can you see my smile?

   Hope you are enjoying this wonderful Saturday!

    Taking some time to nourish my Self.

I have found that I love drawing faces again.
I want to learn and practice and keep trying.
I want to get better with drawing eyes, lips, noses.
I want to learn more about light source and shading.

    What do you do to take care of your Self? 

    Happy Monday. Have a great new week!
                    ~ k

A Book, a Journal, Heart-Thoughts

  Quiet time on a Saturday.

I am so happy and grateful, not only when I get time to read, but when I read a book that touches me.  Have you read any novels by Ann Patchett?

I love drawing.
With the threat of a new lake effect snow,
 I came home from work at a very reasonable time...
and played in my art journal!

    Thanks for visiting!

My Word

    ...found me. SPIRIT.
    I love it.

    I do feel the need to nurture my true spirit,
    to be truer to myself,
    to meditate and become more in touch
    with BEing.

    I was having my doubts about a Word for 2016,
    but remained open, and there it was.  Is.  Spirit.

    It's perfect for me.  It speaks about who I am,
    who I want to become as I learn and grow,
    and whispers something so gently strong.

    I close my eyes and smile as I think it: Spirit.

    My spirit settles into Being as I meditate,
    but my spirit also yearns for something more
    that I have yet to realize.

      Happy New Year friends!
      May you have peace, love, and good health.
