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.

Happy Birthday!

Dear Andi, I love you

I loved making this Art Themed Cake for Andi!  She loves to draw and "color"!  Two years sure went fast...!
