Sunday musings on simple pleasures

  Happy Sunday to all…it dawned on me just how blessed this day is, and how deeply blessed I am as well.  It’s August, in Michigan, and it’s in the lower seventies…how amazing is this?!!  Windows are open, the most delicious breeze is ruffling Fitz’s hair, touching the cats that are lying here as well, and then carressing me as it gently moves thru the quiet house.

Willow is tending to me, applying ginger compresses to my chest. She is a tender caretaker for her oft times aching ( and sometimes cranky) mother.

The clouds are huge…cotton candy fluffing riding the currents above us…remember picture clouds? These are perfect today…

I communed with the canvas for several hours yesterday, and was reminded, again, how the dance with my muse is essential…it is my breath of breath, heart of hearts, and transports me to that place between here and there…

I am keeping this simple, as that is the place/space I am at in this perfect moment.

Know that I whisper and breath prayer for all those that I love,  for those I’ve not met yet, and for those that challenge me…and once uttered,  trust…

Simple peace to you this fine day,



Hello world…Saturday morning musings…

Storyboard 1

I believe it may have been the break in the weather that prompted and stirred me this morning.  The long draught  and  horrendous heat has been blown aside today.  I find I can breath, and even move easier.  The windchimes song is even l lighter, and bounces around in joy…so, today is a grand day to begin my blogging/musing journey.

I’ve been on the most remarkable adventure.  It began with a painting class, taught by Shiloh Sophia McCloud. Two years ago, I took a great big breath, sat up straight, and began my journey with paint and words.  It was indeed, legendary, as the name of the class promised…Leading a Legendary Life.  I danced, sobbed, laughed and cried my way thru finding more of myself. I became known as Indigo Light Weaver, the name of my incredible legendary self/muse.

I reconnected with the joy of writing and also discovered a passion for painting. Since that time, nearly two years ago, I  have completed a 9 month long class, with the same brilliant artist/teacher, and can now guide/teach others.  The painting shown here, was an experiment of sorts.  I bravely (gulp) agreed to show my paintings in an art hop this past February. I thought it would be fun to bring a blank canvas, inviting the public to “touch” it with paint, using their fingers or the brushes provided. I had so much fun, watching all of these people, approach the canvas, hesitating, and then proceed to wear their kindergarten smiles of delight. I had a marvelous tapestry to paint upon, and this is the rich and rewarding image that came forth to meet me.

I encourage all of you, who may be reading this (thank you!), to venture into creativity.
